Howdy, trusty readers!
Over the past month Maggie, Brenna, and I have been deep in talks about the future of The Merry Sisters of Fate. This was prompted by the recent LiveJournal outages over the last 6 months. Because we have a schedule, and you our readers deserve for us to stick to that schedule, we've decided that we're going to be moving our blog over to a brand new website. Truthfully, it's something we've been considering for months and months, this has just made the final decision easier.
As of September 1st, all new Merry Fates posts will be at the new site: http://merryfates.com
. Between now and then, we'll post there and mirror here.
If you'd like to add the new feed to your blogreader, the feed is: http://merryfates.com/feed/
If you want to add it to your LJ friend's page, you can add the new feed directly to your friends: merryfates_rss
In honor of our new blog home, and to make up for that Week of Silence thanks to the attacks on LiveJournal a couple of weeks ago, we're hosting a prompt contest!
All you have to do is write something original based on the prompt below, and post it to your blog or Facebook where other people can read it. It can be a story, a poem, flash fiction - anything you like! Link back here (or here
) in the comments, and you're entered!
We'll randomly select a winner for THESE AMAZING PRIZES:
- a signed advance reader's copy of THE SCORPIO RACES
by Maggie Stiefvater
- a signed advance reader's copy of THE SPACE BETWEEN
by Brenna Yovanoff
- a signed hardback of BLOOD MAGIC
by Tessa Gratton
The deadline is this Friday at midnight CST. We'll announce the winner on Saturday.... and then next week, Brenna, Maggie and I will each post a story that WE write, based on the same prompt. Brenna on Monday, me on Wednesday, and Maggie on Friday, the way we used to post back in 2008 when The Merry Sisters of Fate first began!
Here's your prompt, "The Turret Stairs" by Frederic Burton:
Have at it! :D
