Rooglewood Press is delighted to introduce their third fairy tale novella contest—
Five Magic Spindles
a collection of “Sleeping Beauty” stories
|Cover created by Julia Popova (aka ForestGirl)|
The challenge is to write a retelling of the beloved fairy tale in any genre or setting you like. Make certain your story is recognizably “Sleeping Beauty,” but have fun with it as well. Make it yours!
Rooglewood Press will be selecting five winners to be published in the Five Magic Spindles collection, which will be packaged up with the phenomenal cover you see here. Maybe your name will be one of the five listed?
All the contest rules and information (how to enter, story details, deadline etc.) may be found on the Rooglewood Press website. Just click HERE and you will go right to the page.
Rooglewood Press’s first collection, Five Glass Slippers is available for purchase, and our second collection, Five Enchanted Roses is scheduled to launch on July 27, and is currently available for pre-order. Be certain to get a copy of each and see what previous winners did with their wonderful retellings.
Isn't it exciting?! I had the pleasure of writing entries for the first two contests, and I'm eager to start brainstorming ideas for this one. And seriously, that cover is gorgeous. Can you imagine your name on it?
Whoever winds up winning, I know it will be a delightful collection. Five Glass Slippers, which I have on my bookshelf, was amazing. (If you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for? Shoo!) And from the glimpses I've seen of Five Enchanted Roses, it's going to be another delicious installment. Now we have this to look forward to! I have a feeling you'll hear more about it here in the future, as I dream up my own retelling.
So have you heard of the previous two contests? Have you entered? Do you think you'll enter this one? What do you think of that cover? Share your thoughts!
