BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains' points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like "Medusa," Sherlock Holmes, and "Jack and the Beanstalk" provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains' acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage--and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Why I'm Waiting:

I have always struggled with writing a strong villain because they always end up being too cliche or too quirky to feel relatable. This anthology sounds like the perfect "research" for me on my journey to creating that perfect evil-doer. Of course, you know I'm not going to neglect mentioning Marissa Meyer and Victoria Schwab, two of the greatest writers of our time.
