re-imagined Fairy Tales


You probably have a favorite fairy tale and if you do, you probably enjoy reading new versions of them. I know I do. This anthology is full of fairy tales with a twist. Some of them are told from the villain's point of view, some of them turn out a little unexpected. My story (written as Katia Kozar) is a retelling of an old tale called "The Fish and the Ring." I set it in the present, and the story features a young working class woman, the wealthy young man who loves her, and his father's attempt to break them up. The title is, "Friday the Special is Fish."

You can preorder Wicked Ever After for 99 cents. Only on Kindle.

Cozy Mysteries for you!


I belong to a bunch of different anthologies and boxed sets and this one is offering a Kickstarter Campaign to go along with it. You can check it out here

In addition to the anthology, there are all sorts of goodies--rewards for the different levels. More books are better than no books, right? 

And we've blasted past our initial goals and are working on our stretch goals for this last day of the campaign. Check out some of what you'll get.

Don't wait!

Afterwitch Chronicles by Kat Parrish now on Channillo

 I have taken the plunge into serial fiction. I'm still thinking about putting something up on Kindle vella (I have two covers for stories I haven't yet written) but I think Channillo has a lot going for it. The story I've serialized is the first of my Afterwitch Chronicles, a post-apocalyptic story that was inspired by the covers I bought. Those covers turned out to be kind of a saga. I purchased them from Book Cover Design and Amazon refused to allow them, saying I'd violated copyright.

I contacted the designer, who sent me the original images and showed me what she'd done and her receipt from a well-respected stock site which clearly stated, the images were available for book covers. When that didn't satisfy Amazon, I tracked down the photographer who took the original images and he gave me permission to use the images. That still didn't satisfy  Amazon, so a friend made a trio of other covers for me. But this cover and its two mates always said post-apocalyptic witchiness to me and I love them, so I am using them with my story. You can find it here
