Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 3355 comments @Sandra - Question: Trying to find a way to squeeze A Blood Seduction into this challenge. From the description "Quinn stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see"...would it be stretching the Cycling category as in a road trip/journey?


message 24: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12922 comments Val, well, technically Quinn does journey to Vamp City so I guess I'll allow it :)


Josie | 1897 comments Oh good thinking on 'Grave Memory'! I'm so excited to read it - I got an email yesterday saying it was in yay :D

I'll be interested to see what you think of 'Anathema', I'm guessing you got it free as well? It seems quite intriguing.


message 26: by Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ (last edited Jun 29, 2012 10:34AM) (new)

Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 3355 comments Since I'm going for silver...I'm just being hopeful about the bonus category. 'Anathema' has been sitting on my freebie virtual shelf for quite a while. Someone on GR mentioned that the premise was original and figured I should check it out to relieve my swelling, out of control freebie pile :)

No Shieka, you can use any genre. If it is specifically PNR or UF it is always spelled out in the rules. If it doesn't say anything then you're good to go.

And welcome to your first challenge :D
