Allison Sekemoto has it pretty rough. She used to be human, living on the edge of the New Covington, scavenging for food, refusing to become a “Registered”: a “blood cow” for the vampires who now control Allison’s world. Although Allison’s life in the Fringe wasn’t easy, she would go back in a heartbeat if it meant she could return to the way things were. Back when she wasn’t a vampire. Back when she didn’t want to drink human blood.
Inspired by Allison’s struggles in Julie Kagawa’s newest novel, The Immortal Rules, we challenged you to write a story about someone fighting his or her own nature. The entry period has ended, but you have a chance to choose the finalists. Vote for your favorites, so they can have a chance to win a half hour chat with Julie herself!
The voting period ends at 6:00 p.m. ET May 22, so get voting, figgies!
The grand prize winner will get to chat with Julie Kagawa for half an hour about her series, the writing process, and the publishing experience. The grand-prize winner will also receive a signed copy of The Immortal Rules, copies of the entire Iron Fey series (The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen, and The Iron Knight), and an Immortal Rules sweatshirt.*
Second place gets a signed copy of The Immortal Rules, Pushing the Limits by Katie Mcgarry, copies of the entire Iron Fey series (The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen, and The Iron Knight), and an Immortal Rules sweatshirt.
* The chat will take place on a platform of the author’s choosing (telephone, Skype, etc.). The grand-prize winner is responsible for any charges or fees associated with participating in the chat.
