and more!

Everyone, thank you SO MUCH for participating in this year's Fairy Tale Fortnight and celebrating our fifth anniversary with us!

We know there were lots and lots of posts, and it was overwhelming, to say the least! If you missed a few posts, you can catch up no!

Misty and I have put together this year's wrap-up, and it's full of so much fun.

Below, you can see giveaway winners and a round-up 
of everything that went on.  
Misty is also featuring one on her blog today!

I'm sorry this post was delayed for so long.  After all the intense blogging due to the event, back-to-back blog tours, and work/daily life, Misty and I took a little break.  Plus, this post was DAUNTING!  It eats time for breakfast and STILL wants a snack...

Want EVEN MORE fairy tales?  Most Thursdays, I run a feature entitled "A Twist in the Tail" for all things mythological, as well as fairy tales, mermaids, classic retellings, etc. 

Love fairy tales and mythology?
Fans of mermaids, dragons, unicorns, and other mythical creatures?
Enjoy when a beloved classic tale is retold?
A Twist in the Tail Thursdays features all this and more!

Love mermaids, selkies, and other underwater beings?  Come back this summer for my fifth annual Splash into Summer event!
(Yep, another anniversary!!)

Here's a peek at what we did our firstsecond, third , and fourth summers!
Splash, like FTF, which will feature more reviews, guest posts, author interviews, giveaways, and more!

(This is last year's logo. I haven't made one for this year, yet!)

Here's what you might have missed 
during this year's
Fairy Tale Fortnight:

(And here's what you missed at The Book Rat! The below round-up list is only from ABS!)


Those of you who have read my giveaway policy already know that winners are contacted via email and not announced on the blog, but for the sake of FTF, here's a brief list of winners!

If you find yourself listed below, please let us know in the comments or by email if you no longer want your prize winnings, so we can find a new home for your prize. One that will give the book the attention that it deserves; take it for walks, let it play with other books. Maybe have children in the home to play with it and keep it company... ;) [But seriously. If for whatever reason you no longer want your prize, let us know ASAP!] If you're not sure if you're the one listed (some of you have same/similar names!), ask us and we'll clarify.  Congrats!!!!

[I'll update this list tonight after work.

It will be live on Misty's blog much earlier if you can't wait!

We just need to double-check that we have everyone's info!)


32 of you posted your amazing reviews, fun fairy tale posts, and more across the blog-o-sphere!
