Wolf Pact Flash-Fiction Contest

Lawson and his fellow wolves were once the proud guardians of time. Now they are enslaved in the Underworld. At 18, they are turned into hellhounds—they lose their souls and are forced to do Lucifer’s evil bidding.

Lawson is determined to escape from this terrible fate. With the help of his brothers and sisters in the pack, he develops a plan to flee aboveground. It seems practically impossible, not to mention very dangerous to attempt to leave the Underworld, but with the help of his pack, Lawson and four others manage to escape.

Inspired by Melissa de la Cruz’s new series Wolf Pact (a spinoff of her popular Blue Bloods series), we’re hosting a weeklong flash-fiction contest!

The Figment editors will choose the 10 best entries from the entire week and send them to Melissa, who will choose one grand-prize winner.

The grand-prize winner will receive eBook copies of all six titles in the Blue Bloods series (Blue BloodsMasqueradeRevelationsThe Van Alen LegacyMisguided Angel, and Lost in Time) from the iBookstore. Five daily winners will each receive an eBook copy of Lost in Timethe sixth book in the series.

  1. Does it need to be two people planning their escape from the Underworld, or does running away from anywhere fulfill the prompt?

  2. Nice! I didn’t get to finish the prompts in the ‘Because It Is My Blood’ contest. I did get two done though. I like these little flash fictions. Helps fuel me up for NaNo.

  3. My entry for 10/09/12 does not show up on the entries pages. I poste it last night around 8pm eastern standard time zone.

    • Hey Karen!

      As long as:
      -The tags are correct
      -it was created on Figment after the announcement of the prompt
      -it is published and not a draft

      It’s there somewhere!

  4. Hey! I have another story that was entered in a different contest, and it fits the prompt. Am I allowed to enter it in this contets as well?
