I’m very happy to announce that the fall issue of SPELLBOUND, themed “Creatures of the Deep, Dark Woods” is out! Inside you’ll find great stories, art, and poems for children, including my short story Fangs.
The story is about a Japanese elementary school camping trip gone terribly, horribly awry, and a young girl who has to use her wits, and a dull vegetable knife, to survive. The story also features the return of the dread princess, Kuwa Ibukishita, last seen lurking in my story The Web at the End of the Woods in the April 2012 issue of Underneath the Juniper Tree.
Fangs earned my first writer’s paycheck, so it will always hold a special place in my dark heart. It’s also fitting since that it did so, since it’s a sort of spin-off story from my still-in-progress YA novel Kumiko, which started me down the road of writing for children and young adults and new adults, whatever those are.
You can download Fangs as an ePub magazine for your Amazon Kindle, Adobe Digital Editions, B&N Nook, and other formats. Go here to order it (it’s $5.00 a pop, or $20 for a yearly subscription): http://eggplantproductions.com/spellbound-magazine/spellbound-creatures-of-the-deep-dark-woods/
