Just A Reminder......

Around the end of October, I posted about a writing contest, Another Another Faust Contest. And I wanted to make sure that everyone hadn't forgotten about it. So, I'm re-posting the details.


We want you to write your own short story, re-imagining of the Faustian Bargain. (For inspiration, check out Bedazzled, Simpsons “Tree House of Horrors IV,” and The Little Mermaid). It can be about anything you like (but let’s keep it PG-13, and under 3,000 words), and it’s open to everyone.

All you have to do is send your entry to before January 31.

Rules and details can be found here:

Here are the d's:

Make sure to read them so you don’t get DQed

And the winner gets all kinds of sweetness:

-A signed copy of Another Faust
-A handwritten deleted scene
-A featured article & interview on our site
-An author’s galley of the sequel Another Pan

Though we’ll feature the top five on our site for comments, the judging WON’T happen by popular vote (so basically, we don't care which contestant has the most friends). Dina and I will personally read them.

So, spread the word! Tweet, retweet, forward, thread, spread, embed this post.

Good luck!


My Note:

[Now remember the Faust story is where Faust makes a deal with the devil. In exchange for, in his case knowledge, (the story has been retold many times for love, beauty, riches, life, or to barter for another person's life or soul) he sold his soul to the devil to reside in hell for his afterlife (an remember, the devil is devious, the afterlife maybe start in moments or years). So, in 3000 words or less, can you come up with a story where the darkness (evil) could barter with your hero/heroine for their eternal soul??? Could they escape the devilish darkness??? Hmmm ...... many possibilities here.]

Dottie, I remember reading about it and then I forgot. Hmmm, I don't know if I will have the time, but it's pulling on me,(speaking of diabolical offers) lol!

I hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Sia!

Truthfully, with the Holiday, the weather, and RL, I'd forgotten about it too.

But the idea is tempting me, maybe the very nature of the Faustian bargain, do you think?.....I may give in.....
