Cover Reveal: Mothers of Enchantment

Editor’s note: I am thrilled and excited that we can reveal the gorgeous cover and the release date for Mothers of Enchantment: New Tales of Fairy Godmothers today. The publication date is April 19! Read on for more details, and I hope you’ll preorder! (Kate)

We remember her best as the generous fairy who dresses Cinderella and handles transportation while she’s at it. But that’s just the most famous fairy godmother’s tale. With a little imagination, you’ll find that fairy godmothers and godfathers appear in many varied forms. The authors in this anthology have crafted new tales that re-imagine the fairy godmother and her role.

A young fairy grapples with imposter syndrome as she takes up her new appointment as godmother. Immortal sisters bestow blessings and curses on princesses as a way to battle the patriarchal fairy godfathers. A struggling artist receives a godmother’s help to impress at her high school reunion. Sparing the life of a moth leads to magical help from an unexpected protector.

Retellings of “Pinocchio,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “The Frog Prince” show the magic of these stories in a whole new light. Infused with modern sensibilities but honoring the tradition of fairy tales, these dozen stories will enchant and inspire you.

The cover design is by Sarena Ulibarri, Editor-In-Chief at World Weaver Press. The main image is by Edmund Dulac.

Mothers of Enchantment will be available in ebook and paperback on April 19, 2022! Pre-order now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, or World Weaver Press

Note: I had trouble getting a link to the iTunes Store, but if you go through the World Weaver Press link, you’ll find it. (Kate)
