Inkpop's awesome new writing challenge. It's set around Harpercollins Teen's soon to be released (tomorrow) new book Blood and Flowers. Sounds like it's a seriously different take on the Faerie genre, a bit Tyger Tyger meets Wondrous Strange meets Holly Black. Check out the book blurb:
Until an enemy with a grudge makes an unfair accusation against the group and forces them to flee the mortal world and hide in the neighboring realm of Faerie. But in Faerie, all is not flowers and rainbows—with bloodthirsty trolls, a hostile monarchy, and a dangerous code of magic, the fey world is not quite the safe haven the Outlaws had hoped for. And they must decide what’s more important: protecting their right to perform or protecting themselves.
From critically acclaimed author Penny Blubaugh comes this mesmerizing tale of family, faeries, and finding a place to call home.
As with the Delirium Challenge the Blood and Flowers one is a great wing stretcher for new writers, Write a story, poem or essay that takes a realistic element and pairs it with fantastical element. Oh how I wish I could participate! Head on over to Inkpop and check it out yourself and keep an eye open for Blood and Flowers out tomorrow.
