A Bit of Magic: A Collection of Fairy Tale Retellings
The oldest story can be made new again, changed and altered until it is reimagined and restored.
Pride interferes with happily-ever-afters: a proud princess is tested and tests the prince in return; a young thief is caught red-handed and must make amends; and a vain queen struggles to save her stepdaughter.
Finding love is not a simple task: a hero searches for the ideal magical bride; an innocent librarian is charmed by a man with a menacing secret; a queen takes a spoiled prince as her sole deckhand; and a well-intentioned princess seeks to make things right with her father.
Change causes chaos, for better or worse: a scheming cat seeks to better the lot of his daydreaming master; a cursed pirate captain is given a second chance when he finds a young stowaway; a spoiled teenager suffers the consequences of turning her best friend into a toad; and a thief and a rebel hiding secrets meet at a ball.
Follow these characters on their journeys as eleven magical tales are turned on their heads and seen from new perspectives.
We are the Just-Us League, a group of friends dedicated to the craft of telling stories. We come from all over the world–America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
With different backgrounds, different styles of writing, and a variety of preferred genres, our fiction ranges from fantasy to sci-fi, from horror to romance, and more.
The one thing we have in common is storytelling. We bonded over our writing, and our love of putting words onto a page to entertain is what makes us truly happy.
We hope you enjoy our works–from short story anthologies to full-length novels. Immerse yourself in the worlds we create and the stories we tell…
