Announcements!!! We should have Balloons... :D

First of all, I would like to announce that I have now received an entry for the "First Chapter" contest and have posted it on the new page dedicated to this contest titled "The Amazing First Chapter Contest!"  So go check it out if you  haven't already.  This first entry is under the title "Children of the Song", and it's pretty good... if I do say so myself. *grin*  But it's not mine, so go check it out!  :)

The second announcement I have is that Jake is having a Fantastic Flaming Give-away over at his blog "Teenage Writer".

 He's giving away Wayne Thomas Batson's second pirate book "Isle of Fire".  It should be really good; I've been hearing all types of praise about this one. :)

So go ahead and check it out.

I write mostly short stories with no chapters, could I just enter the first part of a short story?

Of course you may! :)

Short stories are welcomed. For more info about the contest you should check out these two posts:


The links here might not work, but if you are browsing "The Pen and Parchment" check out "In Honor Of..." and "Questions, Answers, and the Prizes!". Those will tell you everything you need to know.

And it's nice to meet you!

Thanks! I've jotted down another entry for you. :)

Is there only one submission for the First Chapter contest? What will you do if no other stories come in? :P


Star-Dreamer said...

Actually I've recieved another one, but I just haven't had time to get it up yet. I'm working on that now. :) Hopefully more will be coming in before too much longer.

But if you would like, maybe you could advertise it on your blog? I'm wanting this to be much bigger than it looks like it's going to be, but... *shrug* Anything might help. :)

I did put up an advertisement XD But I can always put up another one...and I definitely am curious as why only a few people have handed in their stuff. It's a great contest and a particularly easy one to enter, especially if you've already written your first chapter :P
