  1. Is anyone else thinking about the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie, You’ve Got Mail? (Also I’m already working on an MCR/FOB fanfic with this concept, so… :P)

  2. The rules say something should pop up when I click publish, but nothing is popping up? I submitted my book a few days a go and still have not received the email. I put the #internetbesties in it. Is there a reason for this? Did I mess something up?

  3. Hey,

    I have tried to post my new Dark desires online but I didn’t get any mail or any confirmation that it has been included in the competition.
