Call for Fairy Tales Retold

The princess kisses the frog and turns into… a frog? (The Princess and the Frog)

Cinderella is cursed to always be obedient? (Ella Enchanted)

Snow White is in college living with seven geeks? (Sydney White)

Retold fairy tales are all around us and now Ravenous Romance is doing its second anthology of erotically retold tales edited by Rachel Kenley.

In our first anthology SPELLBOUND

- Hansel and Gretel

- Little Red Riding Hood

- Rapunzel

- Beauty and the Beast

- Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

- The Little Mermaid

- The Frog Prince

- The Shoe Maker and the Elves

- The Little Match Girl

- Peter Pan

all received the erotic romance treatment. Now we’re looking for 10 new stories (3-5,000 words) retelling different tales (no repeating of the above stories will be used in this antho).

Update them, give them a new spin, put the princess in bed with not one but two Prince Charmings. Make it hot and give it a happy ending. Currently we’ve received retellings for this antho on:

- The Princess and the Pea

- Puss in Boots

- The Ugly Duckling

How about Aladdin? The Emperor’s New Clothes? Or Pinocchio?

Submissions will be accepted at until October 1, 2010.
