Free Halloween Faery Tale: Roses, Briars, Blood

It is time to adventure into the darkest night, to places of sorcery and transformation. In honor of the Old Year passing, I am offering a free copy of my original Gothic Faery Tale found in these pages, a revised version of “Roses, Briars, Blood”. I hope you enjoy it in this new format, where it can read in the right sequence, and if you like, printed off and held in your hands, and shared.

It has come to my attention that the old link was not working. It is fixed now and hopefully, I have given you enough information to be able to find the link quickly and easily.

Just put your name and email address in the box below. After that, you will receive a confirmation email in your inbox. Click that and you will be sent another email with a download link for the book.

I hope you enjoy this version of Grimm’s “Briar Rose”.

I have made it shine like a diamond for you.

Because you were so brave, and came to this blog despite its dark, foreboding atmosphere (a place you should have run away from the minute you sensed something wicked was afoot) I have decided to give you a little souvenir in honor your great fearlessness.


I have taken all the posts of Roses, Briars, Blood , improved them with a nice revision, took out any potentially troublesome pictures, and put the podcast links inside — they do work! and made it into a book for you! It looks really awesome and is a labor of love. Please take a little time before you go to sleep tonight, and listen to your own special bedtime story.


For you Faery Witches out there, you can’t go wrong fertilizing your dreams with tales.

When you wake up you find your day will have a touch of dark magic about it that suits our favorite time of year….



In the green light of Faery,
