Magic, Myth, & Mischief begins in a mere WEEK!!!

Are you ready???? Friday marks the beginning of September (I know, how is Summer over ALREADY!?), which means it's almost time for something fun that I've been waiting a long, long time to share with you. I'm excited to hear your feedback!!!

As you all know, I'm sort of maybe a little bit obsessed with fairy tales. And mythology. And mermaids.  Only slightly, mind you.

In the past, I've hosted Splash into Summer, which is all about my favorite underwater friends. I've also co-hosted Fairy Tale Fortnight. I've taken part in the now-defunct Mythological Mondays. I've hosted various fairy tale-themed weeks based around specific tales. Most Thursdays, I host my A Twist in the Tail feature combining all of these loves.

....And I really, really miss events.

I'm REALLY excited to talk to you about a MONTH-LONG EVENT I'm co-hosting with Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl. We've followed one another for a long time online, and last year, we were paired up for the OTSPSecretSister Project! Earlier this year, we co-hosted A Week of Beauty and the Beast, and now we're excited to bring you...


The event will take place throughout the month of September 2017.

It will center around fairy tales and mythological retellings, but we'll also spotlight retellings of favorite classic novels and books featuring lore about mythical beasts such as mermaids, dragons, and fae!

And...What’s more fun than making mischief??? 


The best part? We want YOU to be a part of the fun! 

First!!! Jana and I are going to have an themed Instagram Photo Challenge Calendar for you during the month of September, which we'll be releasing this week!

Second!!! We still have room for a few of our amazing bloggers and authors to participate! Would you like to write a guest post about any aspect of this topic? Would you like to write a book review for us to host for you? Are you an author with a book that fits the event’s parameters and want to talk about it? We want you! Feel free to email us your ideas (Jana – JanaSparkles {at} yahoo {dot} com or Bonnie – abackwardsstory {at} gmail {dot} com). Or fill out the handy form below (it keeps us organized) by August 30th and we will get you on the schedule!

Even if you can’t participate, we’d love to have you help spread the word! 

Jana made this absolutely BEAUTIFUL banner for the event:


We'd like to thank DeviantArt artists colgreyissandaraanotherwanderer, and Edil for the designs that helped make this banner possible!

Jana also created fun little buttons to share on your own blogs and/or websites!

If you leave us the links to where you’ve placed the buttons, tweet about Magic, Myth, and Mischief, link on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, your personal blog, etc. now (and/or throughout the event), you’ll get extra entries in any giveaway you enter during the event! How’s that for incentive?
