Interview & #Giveaway: Funny Fairy Tales by Reut Barak @ReutBarak

Please help me welcome author Reut Barak to Full Moon Bites! Watch below for our interview, and excerpt from Red Riding Hood and a giveaway at the end! :)

Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Reut Barak: Hi, I'm Reut Barak and I live in Scotland. I think you can say I'm a bit of an adventurer. I've lived in a few countries and I met people from all over the world. I also like to go hiking and backpacking and I'm always up for learning new things.

Can you tell us, in your own words not the book description, a little about your book?
Reut Barak: Funny Fairy Tales are not ordinary books. They work a lot like an app and it feels like someone is telling you a story. They are also a very quick read, a bit like a snack, something fun you read on the plane or waiting for the train, and every person reads them differently. Some people giggle and swipe left. Others stop and think about the story.

Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?
Reut Barak: Well, I think they come at the same time, because we all know the original fairy tales, but the story for me starts the minute I get a fresh point of view from a character. Like in Snow White, Shraga the sarcastic mirror is where the story starts. It's his interaction with the queen that makes this so colourful.

Can we expect more novels from you in 2017/2018?
Reut Barak: Yes, definitely. Funny Fairy Tales 4, Hansel and Gretel is now in editing.

What is your favorite part of writing?
Reut Barak: When a book passes the critical reader and I know that now it's the final draft and it's ready to go to the copy-editor. I get such a sense of achievement and relaxation, knowing I've done it and it's complete.

Where can we purchase this book?
Reut Barak: The books are available on Kindle, iTunes and Nook.

Random Quickies!

Cats or dogs?
Reut Barak: Dogs. They have a really warm heart.

Do you read more than you write?
Reut Barak: Yes, I love reading. It's a great way to learn about the world and to get inspired.

Favorite book or author? Yeah we know it can be hard to choose! ;)
Reut Barak: It is so hard to choose, but hands down, it's Call of the Wild by Jack London. I can't believe he even wrote that book! It's all about Buck, a half dog half wolf, that lets go of many generations of taming and becomes a wild wolf once again. It's set up in the Klondike gold rush, with the northern winter explorations and the roughness of the ice and snow. I love it when Buck looks into the fire and instead of seeing his masters, he sees a more primitive man, from a world that was younger and more dangerous.

Right now in your line of site, how many books can you see?
Reut Barak: Funny Fairy Tales is all about bringing a fresh twist to the stories everybody loves. There are about 20-30 popular fairy tales, and I've so far done 3, so I've definitely got a lot to explore!!

If a laptop, what kind do you own and would you recommend it to other authors?
Reut Barak: I bought a used 2011 Macbook Air Mini a couple of months ago, and I love it to bits. They are a superior model, and maybe someday Apple will make them again (wink, wink).

Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Reut Barak: Life is a collection of moments. So make them count. At every moment your experience is what you see, feel and think. So if there is anything at all that you would like to do or have, just go for it – make that moment count :)

A long time ago
in a faraway land
there lived a woman
who was allergic to dust.
Her name was Cinderella

Funny Fairytales are a twist on the old beloved Grimm and Disney Fairy Tales. They are fun short stories people can read in a couple of minutes when waiting for the bus or on a train ride. Work just like an app, with story plot changes, new adventurous characters, mysteries and danger. 

Funny Fairy Tales 1 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The new Snow White, with the vicious queen Anagrola, the confused and sarcastic mirror Shraga, and the most gifted seven men you've ever met. 

The traditional tale, with a new development - snow white is not pretty, but smart, the mirror, Shraga has a hate-hate relationship with the jealous queen, and the dwarfs are each craft masters. 

Funny Fairy Tales 2 – Cinderella

The new Cinderella, with the mysterious blue fairy godmother, the cunning step-sisters, and a woman, who for the life of her, just can't stop cleaning! 

The traditional tale, with a new development - a new young fairy godmother, cinderella as a neat freak allergic to dust and with step-sisters who are good and desire to save her. 

Funny Fairy Tales 3 - Red Riding Hood

The new Red Riding, with the hood that leads to fame and fortune, the mysterious wild wolf, and a grandmother so evil, she could rewrite the history of sin. Red’s not little anymore!
The traditional tale, with a new development - the grandmother is exceptionally vicious and the wolf very wise, red riding hood is a young curious and passionate woman exploring the life of fame, and the topic of false accusation is strong in the book.

Excerpt from Red Riding Hood

When Red finally reached her grandmother’s cottage, it was noon and she had eaten a collection of mushrooms she had never seen before.

She was also seeing colors she had never seen before.

The cottage was quiet, and the door creaked when Red unlocked it.


There was no answer.

Red walked in slowly. She was dizzy, but she managed to walk straight into her grandmother’s bedroom, and approach the bed.


Her grandmother seemed somewhat different.

For starters, she had very big eyes.

Red never noticed that before.

Her grandmother also had fur.

Red stopped, confused.

There was something funny going on.

She couldn’t quite put her finger on it.

She thought she might as well say something.

“What big eyes you have.”

Really? thought the wolf, who was lying in her grandmother’s bed. “Well... the better to see you with.”

“What big ears you have.”

“Well... the better to hear you with.”

“What a big nose you have.”

“The better to smell you with.”

“What big...”

“I can tell where this is going, and I’m not interested. No offense.”
