Fairies and Demons Contest Awesomeness!

July 18, 2009

There is a war coming… and the Dark will collide with the Light.

The authors of Prophecy of the Sisters and Eyes Like Stars are gathering their magical armies for a battle to end all battles.

Which side will prevail: the glittering, vicious rambunctiousness of the fairies, or the insidious malevolent evil of the demons?


How To Fight:

Show us your best fairy/demon warrior costume and weapons. Hint: the fairies would have armor-of-random-bits and probably fling pies, while demons… well… they would be fiercely Otherworldly and probably fling spears and sweep you away with their Fallen Angel wings.

Or gather your own armies and reenact the Famous Battle Of Black Forest Cake with Legos, or Barbies, or stuffed animals, or sock puppets…

Entries can be photo essays (up to five pictures with captions) or a video (up to two minutes.)

Send photos as attachments. Upload videos to YouTube and send us a link. Email all entries to . You have until August 8th to submit and must be 13 or older to enter and win.

And The Fiercest (or Most Glittery) Among Ye Shall Take The Prize:

A panel of great and terrible judges will select one grand prize winner to receive items plundered from both fairy and demon realms, known far and wide as the Secret Treasure of the Amazon, long-hidden on Thomas Milthorpe’s library bookshelf in the Théâtre Illuminata Properties Department.

    Hello. I just posted my review of your book on my blog and will also post it on BrentWeeks.ning site (I moderate that and feel the need to promote your book). I am new at actually writing reviews but I love to tell people about good books. I am waiting for the sequel so please tell your publishers to move up its release!

      Thank you so much! I just saw you review (and posted a comment on your site), and really enjoyed reading it.

      Thanks also for cross-posting your review. Everything helps!

      I’m going to be doing a post here linking to recent reviews and will definitely link to yours.

    Hi Michelle,

    It was SO great to meet you at your signing at Books of Wonder today. I always get so happy when I meet another client of Steve’s – it feels like meeting a kindred spirit. I wish you all the success with your beautiful book. I started it on the train and I’m already hooked!

    Ah! Wicked contest! I thought I wouldn’t be able to do this, but then I remembered that I have the perfect costume to take a picture in.

    You know I’ve become completely obsessed with this book when I have a dream that I went to BN and they had the book, only the gorgeous cover I’ve come to know and love wasn’t the cover, but rather some plain and boring one! 😀
