“WOLVES AND WITCHES”
AMANDA C. DAVIS AND MEGAN ENGELHARDT
Alpena, MI () – World Weaver Press (Eileen Wiedbrauk, Editor-in-Chief) has announced the short story collection Wolves and Witches by sisters Amanda C. Davis and Megan Engelhardt, is being re-released with book club discussion questions today, Tuesday, July 28, 2015.
Praise for Wolves and Witches:
“Wolves and Witches is a fabulous collection of re-imagined fairy tales. I made the mistake of starting it late one evening and couldn’t go to sleep until I had read it all. With their dark prose and evocative poetry these sisters have done the Brothers Grimm proud.”
— Rhonda Parrish, Niteblade Fantasy and Horror
“Sisters Amanda C. Davis and Megan Engelhardt are the female Brothers Grimm.”
— K. Allen Wood, Shock Totem
" It’s in the details that Davis and Engelhardt get you. I don’t know if it’s love or obsession or maybe just succumbing to the spell, but what stays with me is the tenor and texture of these tales retold — whether the fabric of a dancing shoe, the hollowness of bones in the wind, or the sharp critique of stereotyped social norms. Let yourself be enchanted and enjoy.”
— Dan Campbell, Bull Spec
“Dark and delicious revenge-filled tales! I Highly Recommend this fun and small collection of short stories.”
— Fangs, Wands & Fairy Dust
“Strong writing touched with sly humor.”
— Lissa Sloan, Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale
“Once I began to read this collection, I couldn’t stop. Just as with those secretive princesses with their silken slippers gone to shreds, I danced among these pages until dawn!”
— Terrie Leigh Relf, Illumen
Witches have stories too. So do mermaids, millers’ daughters, princes (charming or otherwise), even big bad wolves. They may be a bit darker–fewer enchanted ball gowns, more iron shoes. Happily-ever-after? Depends on who you ask. In Wolves and Witches, sisters Amanda C. Davis and Megan Engelhardt weave sixteen stories and poems out of familiar fairy tales, letting them show their teeth.
Wolves and Witches is available in trade paperback and ebook via Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, Kobo.com, WorldWeaverPress.com, and other online retailers, and for wholesale through Ingram. You can also find Wolves and Witches on Goodreads.
