FINAL FAIRYTALE MADNESS

Hi everyone! After Monday's serious post with so many ALL CAPS, today I thought it was time for some fluffy fairytale fun.

*Pauses while blog readers heave sigh of relief*

For a start, the Shadows on the Moon and The Swan Kingdom Giveaway is still on at The Book Rat and Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing. Enter at one or both of these blogs if you want the chance to win signed and personalised copies of these (you do want them, right? Right?). Ashley and Misty's Fairytale Fortnight feature just came to a close and guys, if you like fairytales? You must go over there and check out the amazing reviews, guest posts and giveways they've been running. I'll probably be posting the guest post I did for them here one day next week, but they interviewed and got guest posts from waaaay cooler people than me.

One of the really fun things that they organised was a Communal Bedtime story, where they got a bunch of bloggers and authors to all read a section of a fairytale, then cut all the bits together. It was a lot of fun, and there are some unexpected people taking part - so rather than say anymore, I'll just post the video here. Enjoy!



And now I'm off back to work on Big Secret Project. See you all on Monday!

<3 it!!! You were great, Zoe -- what a fabulous idea to do that. :)

Super excited about the Shadows giveaway!!!

Zoë Marriott said...

Thanks, Isabel. And good luck.

Megha said...

That's such a good idea :) You were fab <3

Today's the day! It's May 5th. CONTEST ENDS (I think). I wonder when I get to find out who won. I *hope* it's me, or Isabel, or someone who really deserves it. I'd like to win SotM more than ANY other book inc. The Iron Witch.

Megha said...

Oh no. They changed the ending date to May 8th.

:(

Isabel said...

Megha: Agh!!! I can't wait to find out who won, even though it's obviously not going to be me. I never win. :(

Zoë Marriott said...

Good luck to both of you! I'm rooting for you.

Megha Z said...

Isabel: I want you to win this more than I want myself to win.

Isabel said...

Megha: Wow, thanks!!! You're so sweet.

I finished 100k!!! It was so good. Thanks for the recommendation, Zoe!

Isabel said...

Oh my Gosh, The Broken Kingdoms already came out!!! (November 2010) Have you not read it yet? I marked it as to-read. It looks super good and I love the cover! (Lovely blue.) I can't wait!

Zoë Marriott said...

Yes, I have it! I haven't read it yet, though - I'm going to wait until The Kingdom of the Gods comes out and read them both together.

Isabel said...

Zoë: Agh!!! I'm jealous... I'm going to have to wait a bit and chew off most of the books on my virtual (it's in my room ;)) TBR pile before I can do my next round of book-ordering. (Which will also consist of Huntress, Starcrossed, and Divergent, if the last two ones are out by then. Oh yes, and The Warlock, by Michael Scott. :) It's part of The Alchemist series, which is sort of science fiction... I usually don't read that but I'm a fan of these particular books. :))

Anyway, that seems like a good idea... it wouldn't be any good if you were left with a cliffhanger and the third book still hadn't come out! Even though this author doesn't really end books with cliffhangers... which is a good thing, obviously. :)

Isabel said...

Oh, wait -- Divergent came out a few days ago! How exciting!
