The book was originally conceived as a compliment to my storytelling show Poison Apples & Pretty Witches (www.LilithLore.com for more on the show). A number of the stories I wanted to tell were adequately altered and twisted for my tastes, but simply didn't fit the established voice of the show. I began writing them down anyway, and after a short period realized that I ought to collect them together, publish them and make them available on my website and at all of my shows.

In order to flesh the book out a bit, I've accepted a few submissions from a small number of additional authors, and am currently seeking an illustrator, to help bring some of these dark, twisted and occasionally erotic* fairy tales to life.

Once things are underway, the book funds should be self-sustaining: profits from the first run paying for the second run and so on. However, as a starving artist, I don't generally have the sort of funds available to print even a small initial run of these books. This is where you come in. Just a few hundred dollars will be enough for me to print a small first run with an online publisher, and get these stories out and into the hands of other fairy tale enthusiasts.

Everyone who pledges even a single dollar to this cause will (unless they opt out) get a mention on a 'Thank You' page within the book.

*I want to be clear here that, like the show, these stories never move beyond what you might call an R rating. However, some of them are nonetheless rather sexually charged.
