Now Available: Cinderella Tales From Around the World

Cinderella Tales From Around the World

Yes, things have been a little quiet around here thanks to holiday and work demands. The good news is that my next title, Cinderella Tales From Around the World (Updated! It's on Amazon now.), should be available for purchase on Amazon and other bookstores sometime within the next week. It's been a long, long, long journey to the end of this book, a longer one than I ever anticipated. And since the table of contents for this one is long, too, I am going to simply say no more and share it for the remainder of this post. Here goes:

  1. Now this is something I want. Cinderella has always been my favorite fairy tale. A giant collection of as many varients as possible sounds awesome

    1. Yes, my frustration is that I couldn't put more in the book since there are plenty more out there in the world!

  2. I so want to buy this book for the One Eye, Two Eyes, Three Eyes stories.

    I actually know one more Hungarian version of the story that does not seem to be here, called "The Orphan Girl's Hair." It intially starts out very close to the Perrault version, right down to the fairy godmother, but after the ball, instead of a slipper, the prince searches for the girl with the same golden hair as the heroine. The evil stepmother then shaves the heroine's head, and presents her own daughter as the false bride. Eventually, the prince uncovers the truth and marries the right bride.

    1. Do you know of a book it appears in?

    2. Tales and traditions of Hungary, by F. and T. Pulszky

      The heroine is referred to as "Ellen," a translation of the name Illona.

  3. Will this be available on kindle?

    1. Yes, a Kindle edition should be available in early December.

  4. Wonderful! Congratulations on your hard work.

  5. Yes, Thank-you for all your research in so many countries, cultures , and time periods!! It would be a perfect book to read one tale each night, curled up by a fire!
