Fairy Tale - Once Upon a Time Contest

***Winner of the Kiss-it-2-Win-It contest is RagDollVampGirl! WHOO HOO--pls email me at brooketaylorbook (at) Yahoo (dot) com with mailing addy, Congrats!***

WIN a signed copy of Fairy Tale AND a "Wing tips kiss" Glamourkin Necklace (shown below) AND a brand new, boxed, sealed bottle of Twilight Perfume!!!

Here's an enticing description Cyn Balog's awesome debut Fairy Tale (formerly Fairy Lust):

"A captivating and witty dark fantasy that will have girls lusting after it.

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future."


"She had always been a saucy sort of fairy--the kind who loved a bit of absinthe at tea time, and a little piano in the afternoon." (more info on Glamourkins can be found HERE)


So how do you win???

After consulting with my brainstorming fairy and getting her sloshed on absinthe, we (by which I mean she) came up with the perfect answer for a this debut release give away...

You have to help write a Fairy Tale!

This is how it works: I'll start us off and then each commenter continues the story by contributing a *sentence* (you can have more than one, of course, but don't hog the story with multiple plot points). Then the next person adds a *sentence* and so on until we have a story. (Make sense?) Be sure to read any previous comments to get a feel for where our story is going and then throw in your own plot point or details about what happens next. Remember to give our heroine lots of curve balls and challenges to overcome and maybe a hot prince or two :-) And be on the look out of celebrity author contributions! (In other words--fellow authors are encouraged to participate, just add a *NE* to the end of your comment if you're not actually entering the contest, just participating in the fairy tale.)

A few more details--deadline to comment is Monday, June 15 @ midnight, 5 bonus entries for spreading the word about this contest on your blog, just leave me the link. Winner will be chosen from a Random Number Generator. Okay--got it? Everyone ready? Here we go, the first sentence is:

"Once upon a time, there was a debut author named Cyn (d' Rella). It was the eve of her book release party and ..."


***Tell me what happens next???***

...she couldn't believe her luck when a vampire appeared at the door, asking permission to come inside.

Heather Dearly said...

there was blood everywhere-who better than a vampire to help her clean it up...

Heather Dearly said...

(I did an RT on Twitter and posted to blog. Will think of more I can do before the release. Squee!)

This vampire did not sparkle like diamonds, but was still super gorgeous.

Katie said...

She wondered if he had any cool supernatural powers like seeing the future or reading minds.

Pam Calvert said...

But after serious contemplation, she said, "To heck with super powers, can he kiss?" And she grabbed his face.

BreiaB said...

He wondered if she would scream if he bit her.

RagDollVampGirl said...

Summer said...

She said, "I won't scream because you won't bite me."

Then she did scream. Because she realized that he wasn't the one that could read minds-- she could! She was a vampire mind reader!

TJ Brown said...

And this vampire had more than blood on his mind...

Brittany said...

...he had just come from his makers house and he was on a mission....

Heather Dearly said...

But then he got a wiff of Cyn's author copy paper cuts, her blood tinged with fairy tale ink....

Lilibeth Ramos said...

"What exactly are you?" he thinks, because it's obvious that she can read minds.

Suddenly the vampire got a panicked look on his face and spontaneously combusted, leaving Cyn to wonder if this made her a widow

Jenna said...

So, now not only did she have blood on the floor that needed to be cleaned up, but now there was vampire ashes all over her brand new shoes.

Laurel said...

"Curses," she muttered and grabbed her keys, "nothing like losing a vamp to ruin your day, but there's better across town--time to head for the cemetery."

Diana Dang said...

She huffed in annoyance because she needed help to get this place cleared up. The doorbell rang and one of her guests just arrived. By the name of Mr. Poochie.

Breanna said...

Mr. Poochie was baffled by all of the vampire ashes on the floor. Since he was most intrigued he just had to ask "why, what happened here?"

Anonymous said...

I just asked him to let me see his behind and he disintergrated - pow! and Mr. Poochie morfed into the most hedious dragon imaginable.

Pissenlit said...

Being much larger than before, Mr. Poochie promptly slipped on a patch of vampire ash and blood and noisily crashed to the floor.

harmonybookreviews said...

Cyn ran to help him but the she stepped on the vamp ashes and they ignited in flames.

Llehn said...

"Help!" Cyn cried. "I'm on fire! And my Pradas are new too!"

Cyn took off to the lake and jumped in.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

She swam for a mile until she started shaking and tried to get out, but a mermaid appeared announcing that she was princess of the ocean and Cyn had to stop and speak with her before she was able to leave.

dianecurran said...

"I've always wanted to be in a book," said the Mermaid. "Those fairies get far too much attention. Along with the vampires."

BrigidsBlest said...

Cyn opened her mouth to answer that, but before she could get a word out, the mermaid exploded in a burst of scales and green blood, and when the mess had dropped into the water, the darkly handsome Demon Lord who had destroyed the mermaid stood on the shore.

babygirlG said...

For some reason Cyn felt as if she had seen him before. She gasped when she recognized him.

Laila said...

She couldnt believe her eyes stannding infront of her was the famous Edward Cullen Its was almost unbelieveable. She blinked to make sure she had seen correctly.Next to him was his fiance,Bella Swan

Liviania said...

"Am I in a fanfic?!" she exclaimed. That would be an even worse fate than a messy house with guests arriving.

Keri Mikulski said...

"What fanfic?" Edward asks, pulling his gaze from Bella for just a moment to glance at Cyn.

Alexandra said...

"Never mind," said Cyn, and getting a really good look at him, she couldn't help but think that when it came to vampires, Angel and Spike were definitely more attractive. Then her vampire-mind-reading powers kicked in again, and she heard Edward think, "If this is a fanfic, perhaps I can be OOC and eat her!"

Alexandra said...

Here's where I blogged about the contest for more entries. Thanks for holding the contest, btw!

luckygirl1112 said...

"Edward Cullen you WILL NOT eat me. And that's final. Do you hear me?"

Barrie said...

And Edward was so shocked at receiving orders from a female (Bella would never do that) that he took a big vampire step backwards and said...

Are you are Volturi? Please, spare me and my love!

Kate at Read This Book! said...

Cyn shook her head. Just then, the heard howling in the distance. "Great, the wolf has arrived," Edward muttered.

Lilibeth Ramos said...

"What's this I hear about eating people?" Jacob inquires. "Oh, Jake!" Bella swoons. "Bloody hell!" Edward mutters...

Cindy said...

Once the wolf heard this he replied a snarky remark back.

Enter me please!

cyn said...

Cyn suddenly whipped out her flamethrower and burned Jacob, Bella, and Edward to a crisp. "Vampire stories suck," she snarled. "Fairies rule."

And just then, a winged creature descended upon her. "You are our queen," it said, "And we have come to take you home."

robin_titan said...

"Finally," Cyn says, "I've been waiting for someone to recognize my queenliness for years"


*BTW this is the best contest ever I LOVE reading what everyone has added to the story. :)

Alexa said...

Thousands of winged creatures swarmed around her. "hurry my queen, you are not safe out here."

Sarah Vasquez said...

Cyn was brought into this place where the fairies lived it was shaped like a giant bee hive. She was now safe from the vampires.

Lilibeth Ramos said...

"Ah," Cyn says, "My own kingdom-I mean hive. So, what do you guys do for fun around here?"

Heather Dearly said...

"We celebrate an author's debut with fairy wine and Twinkies, of course!"

Book Spot said...

"And you don't even have to worry about the wine combusting either,we've specifically designed our hive to stop anything or anyone from blowing up.

....We can even fry the Twinkies," the finished in a whisper."

Ashley said...

Suddenly, they all heard a loud bang outside of the hive.. they rushed to the door to see what it was.

Lilibeth Ramos said...

"What the hell is that thing?" Cyn asks. It looks like a life-size snake and had two heads.

fayeflame said...

The snakes greedy eyes look for a way in. It's tongue hissing, coming out to smell it's prey. One a the fairies yelp in fear. "It can't come in here" Cyn says. Trying to reassure the fairies, but she din't even believe her own words. The hive may prevent anyone from burning it up but what about it being a attack by two headed snakes!!!

it was really funny

Taste Life Twice said...

Cyn whipped out her flamethrower again and demolished the two headed snake into a pile of smoking ash. Unfortunately, the fire spread to the hive as well

Kristen said...

when she stepped outside, a handsome man was waiting for her, holding open the door of a fully stocked limousine. She managed to control herself (on the way there...) and she was impressed with the handsome man who swooned her publishing company into giving her lots of money and promising to publish any awesome books she ever wrote - until death shall she part. And well you can imagine what rewards the handsome, dashing man got on the way home...

Kristen said...

Gah! I messed up.. I thought.. oh well.. here's the real one:

Due to the lack of fire extinguishers, Cyn had to run through the hive. Dropping and rolling to save herself, she escaped the burning hive and ran into the dark and dismal forest nearby, where she found strange creatures.
