Twitter Fiction Festival-And Our Sasquatch Romance

Okay, so as usual, I'm late in announcing this awesome thing that's happening for the next five days. It's called the Twitter Fiction Festival.

But first, here's how it happened:

I get an email from Emmy Laybourne (author of MONUMENT 14), and she's all "Hey peaches! Do you have a minute for a phone chat? I kinda sorta entered us into the Twitter Fiction Festival to write that YA Sasquatch Romance you're always talking about. And...we kinda sorta got picked! So um, call me mkay?"



I call her and begin with, "What have you done?"

When she explains the details to me, and tells me how fun it's going to be, and murmurs encouraging things in my ear, then I start to calm down.

So here's what it is. Emmy (@EmmyLaybourne) and I are going to be tweeting our YA Sasquatch Romance short story, MONSTER CRUSH, from each our Twitter profiles. There are a few ways you can keep up with us. Everyday, beginning yesterday (sorry!) we'll begin tweeting the story from 4 to 5 pm (EST). If you want to follow along during that time, you should follow BOTH our profiles, because it will be told alternating between us. You could also visit the Twitter Fiction Festival landing page during that time and see the flow from both our profiles in real time.

Each day, we'll be asking for suggestions for the next day's installment. Names, places, professions, etc to use in the story. If we pick your suggestion, you will get a prize! (Yay for prizes!)

Also, Emmy and I have decided to post the installments on our websites, in case you miss a day and need, just NEED, to know what happens.

And, I just realized a few days ago that this festival is an international thing. So ALL the countries can see our YA Sasquatch Romance. Someone hold me.
