I am incredibly excited and proud to announce the fifth and final installment to the Magical Menageries anthology series:
Horses, unicorns, Pegasus…
I can’t even begin to tell you how difficult it has been to sit on this announcement and not shout it from the rooftops… though I did enjoy answering ‘Nay’ when people asked if I’d give them a hint of what was coming next. Nay/neigh, get it? Ha! I kill me!**
Without further squealing on my part, here are the details:
Magical Menageries #5: Equus
Horses are represented in mythology and folklore from Paleolithic right up to modern times. What is it about these magnificent creatures that fascinates us and captures our hearts? Is it their intelligence, their power, their beauty or something else that draw us to them? That is just one of the questions we’re going to explore in Equus.
I will be looking for stories about every kind of horse from the earthly to the mythological and though I’ll be placing a special emphasis on horses, unicorns and Pegasus, every kind of magical equine is welcome (and really, aren’t they all magical?). Stories with a strong sense of place will have an advantage, as will those which explore the connection (for better or for worse) between equines and humans.
Rights and compensation: Payment: $10 and a paperback copy of the anthology from World Weaver Press. We are looking for previously unpublished works in English.

But wait! There’s more! While I have you here allow me to update you on a couple other Magical Menageries details 🙂
First, for a limited time electronic versions of Fae are currently on sale now for only $0.99! That link will take you to Amazon but it is available at all the other usual suspects as well.
…and I’m just gonna leave this banner here again because it’s just so damn pretty!
