Affiliate Fridays, a time to pimp out some of our affiliates!

Affiliate Whoring Fridays

Welcome to our new Friday feature - Affiliate Fridays! This will become a weekly posting, but our focus is to bring you news, events, and important information from other sites within the Fandom. And, well, we are giving some well-deserved attention to some of our affiliates. Also, if you're affiliated with us and you would like us to feature something in this weekly post, send us a note at

Ah, A Different Forest. I am currently dipping my feet in your clear streams. I dare say, I have been reborn in the clean and fresh air you so provide. I am so in love with you that all I can think of is sitting by a campfire admiring your pretty orange and red hues.
Or reading about what kind of pajamas total strangers wear. Strangers that aren't so strange after all. The kind of people you can hang out and drink a beer with. Or roast a wienie.
Those that appreciate the beauty of some Rob eye candy. Or some Jackson. Even some Billy Burke. Or noting down some recs. And even checking out some of my favorite authors' cabins.
I dedicate the montage of forest and campfire porn to you, A Different Forest. I bought a fresh bag of Jet-Puffed Marshmallows and a new Bic so that when I finish writing my next chapter, I can stay overnight.

The Twilight Awards , of course, is the great and fantastic directory and calendar of all twific awards, challenges, and writing contests! You can ask them to highlight your contest, as long as you provide all the appropriate information regarding your contest, and they are wonderful about tweeting it out there to all their followers. You wouldn't believe the number of hits you will receive to your contest, and the more hits = the more entries = extra creativity!
