Skull White: Legends of the Fairytale Kingdom
Anna Godiva sets the record straight and tells the actual story of “Snow White.”
In the Fairytale Kingdom, a woman wishes for a girl with skin as white as snow, cheeks as red as blood, and hair as black as her ebony window frame. Unfortunately, the incompetent fairy misunderstands, and gives her a child with bones as white as snow, eyes as red as blood, and a heart as black as the ebony window-frame. Thus, Skull White is born.
What follows is the real tale of “Snow White”: a tale of envy, selfishness and justice undelivered; and an outcast’s struggle to find her place in a superficial world.
A new longish short story to buy on Amazon. Other sites coming soon. Here is the (current) blurb… I’m not sure if it captures the whole “aura” of the story yet:
Against her wishes, Emily’s family drags her up north for Halloween. She can think of a lot better vacations than Von Weber Manor: no Internet, no cable, and no reception.
She soon learns that two ghosts wander Von Weber Manor: Ezra and Casimir; one dark, one light. But perhaps the person Emily should fear the most is not a ghost at all: Sylvia, last of the Von Weber family, hides behind black sunglasses and a parka, claiming she is sensitive to light.
A 5,000 word short story (approximately 23 printed pages).
Coming Soon: A dark fairy tale retelling of “Snow White.” Fun Fact: In Grimm’s Fairy Tales, it’s actually called “Snowdrop.” At least, in the version I have.
A new cover for Benedictum, a dark fairy tale exclusive to Amazon. Future stories will have wider distribution.
A tale of horror and love for teens and adults alike… blurb coming soon.
