Five Magic Spindles Contest and Cover Reveal

I've been waiting for this day for months, because today everyone finds out which fairytale has been chosen for Rooglewood Press's next contest.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading the stories in Five Glass Slippers and I'm eagerly looking forward to the release of Five Enchanted Roses.  Ever since last year I've been wondering and speculating about which fairy tale they'd choose for the third round.

Well, readers, are you ready to find out?

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.
