  1. Sorry, typo!

    Anyway, hey Yolanda! It was so nice to meet you over at my blog.

    I'm excited to have the chance to win your ebook! My favorite fairy tale is...The Pied Piper. That one traveled all over the world before it ended up in Europe and then America. Its message is so profound and resonates still today.

    1. Thanks Cherie! Cinderella was one of the few characters I wasn't able to work into Stiltskin or allude to yet... but then, there are two more books after this one...

  7. What a fine prize. Great cover, Andrew. For favorite fairy tale, I'll go with Baba Yaga. What's not to like about a clever girl who inspires her father to shoot his wife? :-\

  8. Hey Yolanda,

    Wow, nice to note some more recognition of another one of my adoring fans. Yes, Andrew is one heck of a guy. I knew his was a fairy good at writing. What the elf, I say. Such excellent prizes on offer with your book included, Yolanda.

    My favourite fairy tale is Goldilocks and the Three Canadian Bears. Who's been eating by pancakes and maple syrup, eh? The story has a grizzly ending. And Andrew, you should now know that a Yeti is a Sasquatch without a suntan!

    I'm going now....

    Gary :)

    1. Thanks Julie! :) The designer's name is Ricky Gunawan. He designed the cover for my first novel, now Stiltskin, AND he created a beautiful map of the world of Thiside for Stiltskin. The guy is amazing.

  20. I am a messy wizard and live with an angry fairy! Yes, I could learn from these fractured tales. I guess I am a fractured tale-lol! I love CinderElla of course ;D

    Nicely done Yolanda! Milo what a fabulous idea! Andrew I love the cover and your ideas!

  21. Favorite Fairy Tale: The Ugly Duckling

  22. There are so many to like. The first one that comes to mind is "The Hand with the Knife." It's short, only a paragraph or two, and seems unfinished. It grabbed my imagination and I kept coming back to it until I wrote a new story based on the original incident.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awesome response! Thank you everyone, especially Andrew for keeping up with all the wonderful comments! You all rock!

    It is my pleasure to announce the winner of all three books - Andrew's Stiltskin and my two novels -- is Gary Pennick - klahanie! Congratulations Gary! Books are on the way!
