The Five Something Something Contest is...

I am so excited to finally share this exciting news with all you authors:

Rooglewood Press is delighted to introduce their third fairy tale 
novella contest—

Five Magic Spindles
a collection of “Sleeping Beauty” 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 “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 their 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.

I am able to tell you from personal experience how exciting it is to participate in the Rooglewood Press writing contests. I have submitted stories to both of the previous contests and was honored to be chosen as one of the featured authors for Five Enchanted Roses. I have learned so much through this entire process. I cannot wait to share my "Beauty and the Beast" story with all of you and finally get to read the other stories in this exciting collection. I hope all of you writers out there will consider entering the contest this year. Sleeping Beauty! What an exciting fairy tale, with so much potential! Authors, get out your writing hats and start brainstorming!
