Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Spook Fest 2014

This contest has officially closed…

A HUGE thank you to all who entered, who read and who participated by voting… It was such a tight race with nearly 1000 votes! A photo finish to the end – it was so close to ties for more than one place. Truly, I am beyond proud and humbled by the way the contest turned out and look forward to continuing it again next year! Excellent job to all 🙂

After a fun discussion in Kittyinaz’s facebook group about these wonderful two sentence horror stories credited to various Reddit users, some of us ladies were feeling inspired by them and the Halloween season. As short as they were, they had the feel of a writing prompt which is exactly what they became for many of us, but then I had the idea to take it further…

Why not have a little Halloween one-shot contest using these two sentence horror stories as prompts? Most seemed on board with the idea so I decided I’d host my fist ever writing contest in the form of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Spook Fest!

bertiebotts3 copyThe rules are simple and follow thusly:

  • Each story must be inspired by one of the below two sentence horror stories. Please indicate on your submission which one you are using. There’s twenty so plenty to choose from!
  • All fandoms/pairings/crossovers will be accepted! Even original fiction!
  • Entries must be a minimum of 800 words (approximately one page)
  • All entries must be received by October 25th midnight PST.
  • All entries will be anonymous, but you must include your name/pen-name when submitting.
  • Feel free to promote the contest and announce to your readers that you have entered, but anyone found announcing which story is theirs before the close of voting will be disqualified.
  • In keeping with the above rule, writer’s will not be permitted to post their stories on their own accounts/wordpresses, etc. until the close of voting.
  • Send your entries to: bertiebottwrites@gmail.com
  • Voting will commence October 26th through October 31st midnight PST.
  • You may vote once a day
  • Winners will be announced (tentatively) Novemer 1st.

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below, or send me an email to the above address. Halloween is such an amazing time of year and I’m thrilled to have this new way of getting in the spirit of things… I can’t wait to read all of your awesome stories – though I won’t read them right before bed 😉

  1. Hi there, when are you updating more New chapters of Thirsty for your love.
    I miss reading this story line of Bella and Damon Salvatore. But I love reading your other stories too. But I favor more stories by Damon Salvatore and Isabella Swan more.

    1. I’m working on the new chapter for Thirsty now 🙂 I was too tired to finish it last night, as was planned, so I’m hoping to have it up later today…

      I miss them too ❤
