Something Grim This Way Comes

Grim - the dark, fun anthology I wrote a short story - is out today. They're all short stories based on Grimm Fairy Tales, and the one I did is called "The Pink." Since it's a more obscure story, I decided do a retelling in the way that the Drew Barrymore film Ever After is a retelling of Cinderella, and less the way Clueless is a retelling of Jane Austen's Emma. It was fun to write, and all the other stories in the anthology are dark, twisted, and entertaining, so it's definitely worth checking out.

In case you missed the info on it, here it is:

Inspired by classic fairy tales, but with a dark and sinister twist, Grim contains short stories from some of the best voices in young adult literature today: Ellen Hopkins, Amanda Hocking, Julie Kagawa, Claudia Gray, Rachel Hawkins, Kimberly Derting, Myra McEntire, Malinda Lo, Sarah Rees-Brennan, Jackson Pearce, Christine Johnson, Jeri Smith Ready, Shaun David Hutchinson, Saundra Mitchell, Sonia Gensler, Tessa Gratton, and Jon Skrovron.
