Lexi Post has been combining her brand of romance to classic stories to produce intriguing tales filled with a modern taste of saucy heat to the simpler historic love stories. She has revamped Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of Red Death in her novel, Masque. Taken Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Rappaccini’s Daughter to create her novel Passion’s Poison. In this Making Love 101, Lexi will talk about her retelling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow as the modern love story Passions of Sleepy Hollow. Thanks for your time, Lexi!
I’ve read a lot of adaptations of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow from many genres and I do have some favorites. One of the ones that actually stands out most in my heart was an unpublished short story I read by one of my college professors that had a disturbing horror lean that crossed 80’s slasher films with the legend and made the tale an urban blood bath. I think that one of the best homages a writer can give to a classic or well loved story is when they truly make it their own. To pull it out of the world it once lived in and recreate it as something that makes you see it in an entirely new light. Lexi Post doesn’t only give you a new taste of Sleepy Hollow and it’s legend with this novel she pretty much remaps your taste buds! This is an effing amazekittens read!
