Waiting on Wednesday #55: Wishes and Sorrows by Cindy Lynn Speer

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

Due out October 30, 2014
from Dragonwell  Publishing
This week, I had my mind on fairy tales when I was looking through the books that are coming out soon. I came across this collection of stories by Cindy Lynn Speer entitled Wishes and Sorrows.

Dragonwell publishing's blurb says:

For every wish there is a sorrow...
Wishes are born from sorrows, blessings are sometimes curses, and even fairy godmothers cannot always get what they want. In this original collection, Cindy Lynn Speer, the author of The Chocolatier's Wife, brings to life creatures of myths and tales mixing them into a vibrant tapestry of stories, happy and sad, magical and real, each lovingly crafted and sure to touch the reader's soul. 

Step into the world where magic is real and every mundane bit of reality is as magical as a true fairy tale.

 It makes me think of the phrase, "Be careful what you wish for." On the other hand, I was wishing for a book with fairy tale type stories and there it is. So, sometimes we get lucky. 

What book are you waiting on this week? Give me a link or a title in the comments below. And Thanks for coming by!
