First, there's a new look coming to EC in the new year. A really new look. And quite possibly, a new platform.
Next, Krampusnacht is Saturday night. Eileen Wiedbrauk, publisher at World Weaver Press, wrote a great blog post about Krampus on Rhonda Parrish's blog. You'll learn a lot about Krampus and have fun as well. Here's the link.
And, if you'd like to read the anthology, Krampusnacht: Twelve Nights of Krampus, here's a link to Amazon. If Amazon is not your thing, here are all the buying options at WWP.
While I'm at it, don't forget that Frozen Fairy Tales was released in November. You can buy it here on Amazon. Or, you can find other buying options here, at WWP.
In wonderful stories news, two tales from Frozen Fairy Tales have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. They are "Death in Winter," by Lissa Sloan, and "The Stolen Heart," by Christina Ruth Johnson. Both of them have been EC contributors in the past, and I couldn't be prouder. And I love all the stories in FFT, so do please read them. I know am obviously partial, but this really is a wondrous collection.
And, if you have an interest in how Frozen Fairy Tales came about, please visit John Pazdziora's interview with me here at Unsettling Wonder. Unsettling Wonder is a great publication you should be reading and submitting to!
Last, if you are a Chronicles of Narnia fan, and I am positive most of you are, then you certainly remember Edmund and his Turkish Delight. Here is a fabulous, funny, and highly readable report on Turkish delight and American readers remembering their first encounter with the candy while ready the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.
