A to Z Blogging Challenge, Day 4: D Is For Domovoi

“Domovoi” by Ivan Bilibin, 1934

In our upcoming release from LooseId, we feature a creature called a domovoi.  Small, generally male, domovoi are a boon to a good housekeeper and a plague to a bad one.  In Russian, the word dom means house.

One of the best parts about writing is being able to incorporate our favorite elements in our stories.  I love mythology and finding references to faeries, the fey, and other folklore.  I adore Russian folklore, full of strange creatures like rusalkas, Baba Yaga and her house on chicken legs, and domovois.

What are your favorite folklore or faerie tales?

  1. The baba yaga was always one of my favorites, although I am also very fond of leprechauns and fairies. – Fawn

    1. Hi, Fawn! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. Ooh, leprechauns – good one! I love them as well. Faeries too. 🙂
