Due to lack of response, The Season of Giving contest has been canceled, however a similar, yet very different in many ways, contest has taken its place. Please check out the Winter Holidays contest, open to both authors and artists (banners or video). The contest runs from November 1, 2015 until March 1, 2016.
The entry must be about one of the following holiday themes: Thanksgiving, Winter Solstice, Hannakuh, Christmas, New Years, or Valentine’s Day.
The contest is open to any fandom, and contestants may send in multiple entries if they wish. Special awards are given for ingenuity with the use of fandoms/characters in the artwork or stories.
The start of the story I’m working on has been posted. Just as with my other stories, I can’t promise when there will be a new update available as I’m kept very busy and have very little time to write. However, I will say I have more motivation to continue this story than I do any of the stories I attempted in the Twilight fandom. Hopefully that means the next chapter will be ready sooner rather than later!
Summary: Unable to deal with the guilt he feels regarding the actions of his demon, Angel seeks a slayer to end his life. Instead of granting his wish, she sends him on a new quest to use his power for good, leading him to his first challenge at the Hyperion Hotel. There, he learns the full scope of the gypsies’ curse and regains family he thought lost.
Fandom 4 Fanatics deadlines have been decided (for now anyway)
Recently I’ve been working on download fan fics that are posted on personal web pages rather than fan fic sites or blogs. After some searching and trying out a few different options, I settled on the GrabMyBooks browser extension (works best with Firefox). It allows me to instantly grab all the text on a page or link, edit it within browser (if necessary), add multiple chapters, even add a cover, title, author, and summary in the metadata.
The extension allows you to save in either epub or mobi (Kindle) format. I prefer saving in epub, as it’s the smallest file type and converts to other types of files best. You can even put in the settings to have the books emailed to you if you want.
