New York, NY (November 20, 2012) – World Weaver Press (Eileen Wiedbrauk, Editor-in-Chief) has announced Opal, a novella by Kristina Wojtaszek, will be released in ebook and trade paperback on Tuesday, December 18, 2012.
Wiedbrauk commented, “Opal is a gorgeous and lyrical retwisting of a fairy tale that instantly put me in mind of Patricia McKillip's beautiful fantasy novels. This novella is a soulful and poetic addition to the World Weaver Press catalog.”
White as snow, stained with blood, her talons black as ebony… In this retwisting of the classic Snow White tale, the daughter of an owl is forced into human shape by a wizard who’s come to guide her from her wintry tundra home down to the colorful world of men and Fae, and the father she’s never known. She struggles with her human shape and grieves for her dead mother — a mother whose past she must unravel if men and Fae are to live peacefully together.
Opal will be available in print and ebook via Amazon, barnesandnoble.com, kobo.com, and other online retailers. You can also findOpal on Goodreads.
