Keep In Mind
Please be clear in your submission as to the content and sub-genre of your fairy tale as each of our reviewers has different preferences, and we want to ensure the right person reads your story. We also ask that the covers of the books we feature follow these standards: no gore, no sex/scantily clad people, nothing occult.
We are not beta or alpha readers. We do not yet offer critiquing services; your submission must already be published and edited. Your submission does not guarantee you a high-star review; whichever member of our team selects your book will provide an honest review. We do not receive, nor will we accept, payment for the reviews we write.
We welcome stories of all lengths, but please be clear in your submission what category your story falls under:
Short story: 5-10K words
Novella: 10-40K words
Novel: 40K + words
Formats we will accept are mobi, epub or PDF.
Since we have a wide variety of taste on our review team, the content requirements are simple!
1. The story must feature strong fairy tale elements. This is a fairytale site, after all. The story must be a:
-Direct retelling; featuring recognizable characters in a new setting, or a familiar setting with new characters
-Mixed retelling; featuring elements and or characters from several recognizable fairytales
-Recognizable; with certain characters or tropes from a traditional tale, but it isn't a retelling per say; the plot line doesn't follow the traditional fairytale arc (example: a story about galactic expansion and teacups, combining elements from Snow White, Puss In Boots, and Jane Austen)
2. No erotica, no occult magic. Light fantasy magic (Narnia), heavy magic (Lord of the Rings), or alternate magic (Mistborn) is fine.
