So authors Daniel & Dina Nayeri are hosting a really amazing contest at their website! They are asking people to write their own re-working of the Faustian bargain. You must be an un-published writer and you must write it in English. More details here What will you win? Some pretty AH-MAZING prizes!
-A signed copy of Another Faust (I'm currently reading it and I like it very much).
-An article and interview on the authors website
-An author's galley of Another Pan (Their next book which sounds awesome as well, especially because I actually know the story of Peter Pan whereas I didn't know the story of Faust).
-A handwritten deleted scene
And possibly something else!
So go enter! (I would if I could write :)
And I'm Waiting On...
Explorer X-Alpha by L.M. Preston
Released: Feb. 2010
For most kids, a trip to space camp is a trip of a lifetime, for Aadi it was life altering. After receiving a camp immunization needed for travel to Mars, Aadi finds that the immunization is the catalyst of an insidious experiment. Lucky for him, he was engineered to survive, thrive, and dominate. Without realizing he is being trained to conquer worlds, and manipulated under the guise of a camp, he unfolds the plot too late for a change of fate.
