WICKEDLY EVER AFTER Retold Fairy Tales Where The Villain Wins


WICKEDLY EVER AFTER

Retold Fairy Tales Where The Villain Wins

Sometimes it’s so very good to be bad. And why shouldn’t the villains have their chance at love? If Maleficent can have her happy ending –can’t some of our other favorites?
Riverdale Avenue Books is looking for retold fairytales with a specific twist – the villain is now the hero/ine and has the happily ever after. Wolves win over those who might harm them. Witches seduce and enchant. And good little boys and girls? Well, theirs are the motivations that come into question. Familiar and foreign tales are welcome, just put the villain at the center of your story.
LGBTQ+ and underrepresented characters/voices are welcome and encouraged.
