Sixteen fairy tales.
Also, everyone in this collection is queer.
From trans Cinderella to a polyamorous retelling of “The Firebird” in space, these 31 very short stories are full of the wonder, the enchantment, the darkness and the romance for which fairy tales are best known. Written entirely during July 2018 as a part of Flash Fiction Month.
Beyond Dreams (and 30 other stories) is the product of my fifth Flash Fiction Month, which is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin: a month-long challenge to write a story every day. This is 2018’s harvest.
You can find it in print at:
Createspace: ships from the US; accepts only credit cards.
Amazon US: more convenient if you’re also getting anything else from Amazon.
Amazon UK: ships from the UK, accepts more forms of payment.
Tip: if you live elsewhere in Europe, simply replace the .com or .co.uk in either of those URLs with your most local Amazon suffix to get the best shipping price (as well as probably the most convenience overall).
You can find the (free!) e-book at:
Smashwords: available DRM-free in just about every format imaginable.
Kobo: very popular for Android; good for multiple devices.
Barnes & Noble: for NOOK.
Apple: iTunes version.
Blio: if you use this, I’m sure you know what it is.
Scribd: this is one of those subscription services, so if you already have a subscription, this is probably the version you’ll be wanting.
DeviantArt: not, in fact, an e-book; but you can read all the stories individually here. This probably isn’t the most comfortable way to read Beyond Dreams, but if you’re interested in the individual stories, this is the best place to learn more about them.
