Welcome to Tales From the Hollow Tree, a YA Fantasy flash fiction blog by Lisa Asanuma and Isabelle Santiago.

Lisa and Isabelle have been writing partners for years, playing sounding board and cheerleader for each other.  Their tastes are similar while their styles are unquestionably different.  One thing they’re both passionate about, though, is YA Fantasy and paranormal.

This blog is a writing challenge for us, and a treasure of free reads for you.  Sometimes book reviews and interviews will be thrown in as well, but the main focus will be on sharing one short story per week, either by Lisa or Isabelle.

Our intent is to find and share new worlds, just a step beyond our own.  To follow Alice down the rabbit hole, take the second star to the right and step through that dresser drawer… only we’ve been all those places before.  And there are many, many more waiting to be found if we know where to look.  It’s those little entrances that we seek out here, a glassy pond, a locked door, a hollow tree…

    Hi there… this is kind of an awkward question, but I write gothic short stories for young adults, and I was wondering what your blog stance was on author promotion? I’m looking for hosts for my blog tour during the end of October, and… yeah.

      Hi Heather!

      As long as it’s in the realm of fantasy/paranormal then I don’t see why we couldn’t host your blog tour! Fridays are open ended post days, and we tend to do a variety of different topics on those days, so if you wanted to perhaps do a Friday segment, that would be absolutely doable. Perhaps you could just send me a promo pack with a short bio, a blurb of your book and cover art… and I can put together a sneak peak post the week before… perhaps even review your book that week to get people interested. 🙂

    Wow, wonderful! 🙂 I just sent you an email back. 🙂
