Fairy Tale Fortnight II Info and Invitation!!

It's almost that time again, my lovelies.  You've heard me talk about it for months now, and so many of you have expressed your excitement and wish to participate. (So many of you.  God, I heart you.)   That's right, it's almost time for FAIRY TALE FORTNIGHT.

I've been working on the button all morning.  This is one of my favorite parts of creating the event, but also one of the most nail-biting (what if I eff it up and everyone laughs?!?).  But it's done, I love it and I hope you will too.  And since now we have button, and I can share button, that means it's time to invite you all back!  [Button makes everything official.]

So I present to you:

Feel free to post it on your blog/site or share it as you see fit.  And I have to give a BIG thanks to photographer Robert Bejil for not only taking this amazing photo, but for allowing it to be used.  You rock, dude.  For reals.  (For reals.  You guys should go check out the rest of this set.)

Now, on to THE DEETS:

  • Fairy Tale Fortnight is a 2 week long celebration of all things fairy tale and fairy tale-esque.  Expect book/movie/tv show reviews, guest posts, author interviews, giveaways, games, general discussions and anything else we can get our fairy godmother to grant us.
  • Because Ashley and I love fairy tales so much (and because we're a little bit anal, and like things to round off nicely), this year's "fortnight" is actually slightly longer, running from April 15th through April 30th.
  • We not only invite others to participate, we encourage it!  One of our favorite things about FTF is connecting with other fairy tale lovers, new and old alike!  There will be a linky up on the first day to share your own blogs, vlogs, interviews and giveaways, etc., throughout the event.  
  • We understand that not all of our fairy tale lovin' friends has a blog, channel or tumblr, or that even if they do, they may not want to use it as a venue for FTF goodness.  Well then, use ours -  There is a form below for those of you who'd like to be considered for guest posts either here at The Book Rat or at Basically Amazing Books.  Due to space, scheduling and time issues, we will likely not be able to accept every guest post, but we will certainly try!  (And if we can't give your post a home ourselves, maybe we can help your post find a home on one of the other fabulous blogs that dives into the FTF stream with abandon!)
  • And I think that's about all that really needs to be said, other than here's last year's Schedule of Awesome if you'd like to know more about what this event is about...
I hope you will consider joining us this year, whether you are an active participant, someone who's just reading along, or even someone who just drops in from time to time for a good dose of fairy dust.  We can wait to share the magic with you...

Want in?
*If you're an author who would like to participate, feel free to contact me directly. :)

  6. Incidentally, the entire month of April is fairytale month over on my blog. But it sounds like what you have planned is going to be much more awesome. I'm looking forward to seeing what you and Ashley do.

  7. This sounds great! Will there be a linky each day, or one huge one put up at the beginning of the event?

  8. Looking forward to all the fairytale goodness!! Will be grabbing the button (love the striking contrast of colours!) to put on my blog :)
