Friday The Thirteeners is a small group of YA authors debuting in 2013. Thirteen is a number that marks the beginning of adolescence. It whispers of secret, exciting, and possibly scary things. For us, it says so much about becoming official authors, with all its twists and turns. So we figured the best way to conduct this blog was to host our very own virtual bonfire, complete with prizes and a chance to embarrass us with an ongoing Truth Or Dare.
So welcome! Pull up a camp chair and roast some marshmallows while we get settled in to tell ghost stories and play games. Don’t mind those strange sounds coming from the woods, that’s just Kasie trying to scare us. Hear that giggle between moans? Yup.
The first order of official bonfire business is the Truth Or Dare. Oh yes, my friends, we’re giving you the floor here. We thought this blog would be far more entertaining if we put it in your hands. Your job is simple: Offer up a Truth Or Dare here. Our job is not so simple: Pick a Truth Or Dare, carry it out, and report back. If your Truth Or Dare is chosen, you’ll be getting a little prize from us. Or a big prize, it’s really the luck of the draw (or UNluck of the draw, if we’re being all 13-like).
And who’s the first up on the chopping block? Yours truly, Natalie Whipple. My other daring author friends will continue from there. We are at your mercy. I’d tell you to be kind, but I’m not sure that’s the point.
So send in your Truth Or Dares, and next Friday you could see me fulfilling your challenge (aka: humiliating myself)!
Since this is Friday The Thirteeners very first post, we also couldn’t leave you without some choice rewards. A contest is definitely in order! And, trust me, the prizes are awesome:
Thirteen Winners will be able to choose one prize of their liking:
1. A 13-page crit from one of our authors.
2. An Indie Bound gift card for $13.
3. A black cat pendant made by Natalie Whipple.
Just leave a comment on this post. Following the blog or our twitter feed is much encouraged (so you won’t miss the announcement of winning the contest and/or Truth Or Dare), but not mandatory.
Wednesday, January 18th, 2012, Midnight eastern time. Winners will be announced on Friday (The 20th), along with the results of my Truth Or Dare adventure.
Now, while we await the Truth Or Dares, let’s tell some wicked ghost stories.
