Full Moon Kisses Short-Story Contest

Full Moon Kisses by Ellen SchreiberBeing a teenager in love with a werewolf is definitely complicated—and more than a little stressful. Throw in an ex-boyfriend who’s just turned into a werewolf, too—and isn’t completely over you—and things start to get really messy.

Celeste is in love with Brandon, her heroic werewolf boyfriend. They know that Nash, Celeste’s ex who recently became a werewolf, can’t control his werewolf rage—without a kiss from Celeste. To make matters worse, the psychic Dr. Meadows has warned Celeste that one of these boys wants to turn her into a werewolf—but which one? It’s hard to know who to trust and who to love.

  1. If you create a piece for a contest, and lose that contest, are we allowed to use that piece to enter another contest on a different website?

  2. Question about using Les Mis characters: would that be public domain because of the Hugo novel, or off-limits due to the musical and the movie?

    Thank you!
