My Goodreads Quotes

Allison’s quotes

"Don't you think it's rather nice to think that we're in a book that God's writing? If I were writing a book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right--in the way that's best for us."
Do you really believe that, Mother?" Peter asked quietly.
Yes," she said, "I do believe it--almost always--except when I'm so sad that I can't believe anything. But even when I don't believe it, I know it's true--and I try to believe it."— E. Nesbit

Cover Reveal: Five Magic Spindles

Hello, dear readers!  I am pleased to present Rooglewood Press's next fairytale creative writing contest, a collection of Sleeping Beauty stories titled Five Magic Spindles.


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 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.
This cover illustration was rendered by Julia Popova, “ForestGirl.” You can find out more about this gifted artist on her website:
I (Allison) am incredibly excited for this contest because, due to personal eccentricities, I own a spinning wheel.
Careful with that spindle!

Um... Rooglewood Press?  My entry may be late...
How about you, readers?  Who plans on entering?  Who entered last year?  Do you have any ideas so far?

I plan on entering this year, I didn't enter last year. I don't have any ideas yet. I like your pictures! Their very funny :D

That's so neat that you have a spinning wheel! I've always thought it would be fun to learn how to spin (without harming oneself and falling into an enchanted sleep, of course!). And that book cover is lovely!

I wanted to let you know that I tagged you for the Favorite Screen Characters tag over at my blog, if you're interested in participating!

@Jemma- Thank you!

@Candice- I can't actually spin; I just own one. ; D And thank you! I will definitely participate.
