Wickedly Ever After Anthology Just Pubbed



Riverdale Avenue Books has just released Wickedly Ever After by romance writer, Rachel Kenley. The new collection of twisted fairy tales in Wickedly Ever After in which the villains are the main characters of the story.

● A man who gets more than he expected by binding himself to a selkie,

● A woman who discovers the loveable Beast in the young man she once knew,

● A mermaid who is not meant to be with a prince,

● A witch who has so much more to offer than a cabin made of sweets,

● A singer who has promised something she cannot deliver and gets help from an unexpected source,

● And more. If you’ve ever rooted for a witch, an evil fairy or a wolf, this anthology is for

“This has been one of my favorite anthologies to edit. Villains can be so much more interesting than heroes that the opportunity to give them the lead was clearly a fun experience for the contributors,” said Author Rachel Kenley. “It was also a wonderful surprise to read retold folklore and myth as well as fairy tales. I think readers are going to enjoy the twists and passion in these stories."

“A wonderful collection of stories where the bad guys are the good guys…or at least the guys you want! And the M/M selkie story is just perfect!” said Publisher Lori Perkins.

Kenley previously edited Dangerous Curves Ahead for Riverdale Avenue Books and is currently looking for stories for an anthology on Sexy Superheroes.
