cabinet of creepy curiosities

I have fallen in with a gang of writers of excellently creepy middle-grade fiction: Stefan Bachmann (The Peculiar), Claire Legrand (The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls), and Emma Trevayne (Coda, which is actually YA, but she has a middle-grade book coming soon).

We're playing around on a website called The Cabinet of Curiosities, with one of us posting a new short-short piece each Wednesday.

This month, the theme is "cake." My contribution went up today--take heed, those who do not like the taste of ginger.
