Eggplant Literary Production’s 'Spellbound & Spindles' Kickstarter is now live!
Fairy tales are universal stories. They touch on many positive themes (love, strength, courage, loyalty, cleverness, kindness and charity) as well as many negative themes (abuse, neglect, abandonment, oppression, exploitation and small-mindedness). They are versatile.  They can be unraveled and rewoven over and over again without losing their magic.
We want to create a special edition of Spellbound, our children’s fantasy e-zine, and a companion adult anthology, titled Spindles, to take full advantage of fairy tales’ plasticity. We want to publish fairy tales retold to include minority, LGBT, and disabled characters. We want to create stories that include the whole spectrum of humanity and make them truly universal.
The special edition of Spellbound will be very similar to the other issues with the theme of fairy tales. It will feature fiction, poetry and artwork. We’ll also be releasing a lesson plan with it, just as we have done with all the other issues.   
The companion adult anthology, Spindles, will have similar content, but will be longer. It will also feature fiction, poetry and artwork. The artwork shown in the video is a good representation of the overall feel of each edition.
We believe so much in this idea that we are trying to raise funds not only to create e-book editions of Spellbound and Spindles, but to also publish limited edition hardcover copies. This is why we are turning to Kickstarter to raise the funds. Printing books, especially hardcovers, is an expensive undertaking. If we cannot raise the funds needed here we will not be able to bring this project to life.

    Saying ‘relevant to my current interests’ feels a bit euphemistic.

    Signal boosting. This is so cool. The whole point of fairy tales is that they did change with the times and the culture...
