It seems like forever since the original submission of my rework of the Grimm Brother's fairy tale, The Fisherman and His Wife, to Fringeworks, but it's really only been a few months. It was originally scheduled to be published in August 2013, but has been moved back to October 30, 2013.

The reason for the change is so the cover artist can work on another project for a couple of months and then come back to the Grimm and Grimmer anthology series, keeping the covers consistent. While the delay isn't fun, I really like this guy's work and I do think it is a good idea to maintain the same look to the various volumes.
So, I have to wait a little longer to see the story in print. If you follow this blog, you'll know when it's out because I will be pushing it until you're sick of hearing about it. At the moment, it is supposed to be in Volume IV. Volume I and II are already out.
In the meantime, I've submitted another story to them for their Dead Men's Tales anthology which is to be published under the KnightWatch Press imprint. It's a pirate story titled Skarett's Treasure, and is told from the viewpoint of a dead character. No word yet on acceptance.
So far, despite the delay in publishing, the Fringeworks folks have been good to work with, and even if they don't accept Skarett's Treasure, I'll consider submitting to them again.
