Merry Sisters of Fate contest

19 Jul

Okay, this is beyond cool. The Merry Sisters of Fate – Maggie Stiefvater, Brenda Yovanoff and Tessa Gratton – are holding a sweet little contest over on their LiveJournal page. What’s up for grabs? It’s good, guys, really good!

1. Signed copy of Linger

2. Signed copy of The Replacement

3. Signed copy of Linger audiobook (which Maggie herself squeed about repeatedly on Twitter)

4. A Merry Fates tote bag.

So to enter all you have to do is be a bit creative, with some guidance from the Merry Sisters of Fate themselves.  You’re challenge, if you so choose, is to write something based on the following picture:

"The Princess and the Pea" by Edmund Dulac

I so chose. Here’s my offering:

The candles blow out. Cold and darkness set in. At first she doesn’t notice it, sleep keeping her warm. But then she senses a difference in the room, in the air. Wakes up with a start. She looks down, squinting in the dark. No flames flicker, casting shadows on the wall.  She could climb down, sure, but was it really worth it? It would be morning soon, and it was such a long climb back up.  She decides to wait the cold out. Hunkers under the covers, curling the blankets over her toes. Closes her eyes and let sleep take her once again.

    I really liked your entry. And, I was inspired to create one of my own. Admittedly, I felt like I had a gather a little courage to put my words down there and release them into the blogosphere…. but this was fun. Thanks!
