Book View Café (BVC) is launching Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff's latest ebook, A PRINCESS OF PASSYUNK on August 11. This humorous story is a New World take on an Old World fairytale: the old Slavic Baba Yaga fable "The Frog Princess." The book is dedicated to Bohnhoff's father, Henry T. Harber, who began his life in the Polish quarter of Philly and fueled her curiosity. A PRINCESS OF PASSYUNK concerns Philadelphia in the 1950's, a boy, a baseball, and a cockroach. Unlikely place. Unlikely characters. Unlikely love story. Free read of episode one. To celebrate the launch, BVC is holding a twitter fic contest through Thursday, August 12. The theme is "Retell an old fairytale with a modern twist."
Details and rules are at the BVC website:
First place winner will receive a copy of A PRINCESS OF PASSYUNK, plus a signed copy of Bohnhoff's dark fantasy print title, MR. TWILIGHT. Second and Third place winners will receive copies of A PRINCESS OF PASSYUNK.
Judges: Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, and two other Book View Café authors.
