Shameless Plug: That contest inspired Fairy Slippers, my companion short story to Bleeding Heart. :) (Now available as part of a combo ebook on Amazon; you can learn more HERE.)
Shameless plug aside... Today is all about a brand new writing contest, very similar in style but featuring a different fairy tale. Read on to learn more and to check out the gorgeous cover that will be used for the finished product!

Rooglewood Press is delighted to introduce their second fairy tale novella contest—
Five Enchanted Roses
a collection of “Beauty and the Beast” stories
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 “Beauty and the Beast,” but have fun with it as well. Make it yours!
Rooglewood Press will be selecting five winners to be published in the Five Enchanted Roses collection, which will be packaged up with the gorgeous cover you see displayed here. Perhaps your name will be one of the five displayed on this cover?
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 pre-order now and will be released on June 14. Do grab yourself a copy and see what these talented writers have done with the timeless “Cinderella” tale!

Two additional points to note:
- I just finished reading Five Glass Slippers - such a fun, whimsical, wonderful collection! I'll be posting my review later this month, so be on the lookout for that.
- The cover for Five Enchanted Roses was designed by Julia Popova, “ForestGirl.” You can find out more about this gifted artist on her website: www.forestgirl.ru
