April Grey has been a semi-regular in the chatroom for quite a while. She self-published this book, then offered it as a free download. Well, you know how I like the word free! I wasn’t expecting much. Most of the self-pubbed books I see are self-pubbed because they’re not good enough for a publisher to put their money behind. I know, there are some good ones out there. But they’re hard to find.

I found one!

April wasn’t kidding when she titled this book “13 other weird tales”. These stories are strange. Not everyone resonated with me, but they were all well-written. And well-edited, a rare thing in a self-pubbed book.

My favorite was the title story, Fairy Cake Bake Shoppe. I may never be able to eat a cupcake again. Oh heck, that’s not true. But I will think of this story every time I do.

“When Alexander Died” is a post-apocalyptic tale. What happens if you are left alone, carrying an alien’s child?

“Lace, Lavender Salts and Revenants” is the story of a strong woman who does what she has to do to survive.

If you enjoy weird stories, go ahead and buy this book. You won’t be sorry.

Richly detailed stories that evoke a sense of magical wonder. My most favorite was The Fairy Cake Bake Shoppe: Who would've suspected that fairies do exist and that we mortals are their favorite snacks? Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed reading these stories, because their magical imagery reminded me of the sense of wonder I had when reading my favorite fairy tales as a child. My most favorite tale was The Fairy Cake Bake Shoppe. Who would've thought that fairies exist and are cannibalistic toward us tasty mortals?
