Since the release of the Limited Edition hardcover edition of Vasilisa the Wise and Other Tales of Brave Young Women in December, this gorgeous book has spread her wings. The limited edition is now sold out and we are awaiting a new shipment of the softcover edition.
The reviews have also been flying in – you can check out reviews here.
(You can still order your copy, but you’ll just have to wait a little for it to be delivered).
In the meantime, we are thrilled that the US/CANADA rights for Vasilisa the Wise and Other Tales of Brave Young Women have been sold – the North American edition will be on shelves in 2019. Congratulations to Kate Forsyth and Lorena Carrington and a MASSIVE thank you to Natasha at The Rights Hive for making this sale for us.
Vasilisa the Wise was one of the stars at the recent Perth Festival Writers Week. In fact, it was the second top selling book over the weekend and we sold out within two hours!
To see a book born of serendipity be embraced like this fills our hearts with joy. Read more of how the Perth Writers Week went here.
While at the festival, Kate was interviewed by Richard Fidler for ABC In-Conversations. Listen to that podcast here – it’s terrific!
Kate and Lorena are now about to start a Schools Tour in New South Wales. And finally, here’s a snippet from a review in ENTHRALLED MAGAZINE that seems a good point to end on:
“We have the magical union of storyteller Kate Forsyth, artist Lorena Carrington and Serenity Press, to thank for this special publication. It brings the feminist origins of long-forgotten fairy tales, from all over the world, to life.”
