Today is the day that fairy tale lovers have been waiting for, the dawn of the third annual Fairy Tale Fortnight!  The event was put together by the amazing Misty from The Book Rat, and I've had the pleasure of participating for the past two years.  This year, I have the pleasure of co-hosting the event, and, as I've said before, I'm a Fairy Tale Career Tribute! ^.~

Misty and I have so many reviews, guest posts, author interviews, discussions, giveaways, and more for you.  I hope you have as much fun as us for the next two weeks!  Stop back every day to see something new!  


Don't forget to sign up on the Giveaway Form to enter your information in the event you win a great prize during the event!

(Both are fully resizable.)

Here is Misty's Official FTF Schedule, which will be updated daily!  There's also a Participation Linky for anyone posting about fairy tales during the next two weeks who wants to link up!

I'll continue updating my own schedule with what's going on at A Backwards Story right here on this post, because that's probably easier for some of you to keep up with, right?  So mark this post for the next two weeks!
