The answer to that question is simple.

I live in a magical place and I want my readers to share in the magic.

Really, I do. And to prove it, here are a few of the pictures I’ve taken of the area. First, a few pictures that have already inspired stories in the previous two books:

And here are ones still waiting to be turned into stories

I mean, really, chairs hanging from walls and who rode that bicycle up there?

Oh, and I almost forgot a pic that inspired one of my favorite stories that is in Further Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat, Volume Two:



And there are dozens of these magical bears that show up every summer, stay awhile entertaining visitors and residents alike, then disappear until the following year when a whole new tribe of bears appears.

Magical, no doubt about it




It’s Your Turn

Look at those pictures I haven’t written about. Pick one (or more) and give me your first line of a Foster Flat Fable you’d write. If I use it or something similar to it, I’ll make sure to acknowledge its source in this next book.

In the meantime, check out books 1 and 2. Both books are also available as ebooks, paperbacks, and audiobooks narrated by the amazingly talented Meg Price.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of North Carolina lies the township of Foster Flat. By every appearance, it’s an ordinary place to lead one’s life, and the humble environs strike most as boring—quite a prodigious misjudgment.

The population shares a mutual disapproval of new guests, and the reason for this will soon become clear, thanks to Mimi Rawlins, one resident who’s willing to indulge outsiders. For the whole of its history, Foster Flat has been home to staggering secrets and freakish phenomena. Are these ‘events’ the stuff of folklore? Overactive minds? Or more? You’re free to draw your own conclusions…should you dare to enter.

Despite its disturbing obscurities, few can resist the pull of Foster Flat. It’s a small mountain town steeped in mystery, and, spoken aloud or scarcely whispered, everyone there has a curious tale of reckoning with madness.

Returning as raconteur, ‘Roving Reporter’ Mimi Rawlins delivers a fresh assortment of these strange stories—some to warm the cockles, some to chill the spine, some both.

Past visitors will recognize old friends amongst the new faces, and everyone who enters will find it equally hard to escape…
