Affiliate Fridays for September 3, 2010

A Different Forest is a fantastic site that everyone should check out! Per their Facebook page, they are "a fun fan community for the Twi-verse, and it's open to everyone: lovers, ranters, writers, readers, chatters, photo-mongers, artists, enthusiasts, filmmakers, movie-goers, gossipers, vampires, werewolves, humans, hybrids, Volturi, demon-spawn, grouches, groupies, grumps and even gripers." Follow them on Twitter, too! There is always something new and fun to be enjoyed at A Different Forest! And be sure to check them out on Tuesdays for 'Pimp Your Fic Recs' if you're searching for the next great read.

My Vamp Fiction "is an open community that encourages fun, intelligent discussion about all things Vampire and Vampire-related." Their goal is "to not only provide a one-stop shop for fans to discuss books, music, movies & television series within the Vampire fiction genre (and to some extent, the Paranormal fiction genre as well), but also to inspire creativity through fan fiction, music & art." Please follow on Twitter at @myvampfiction!

My Vamp Fiction is also hosting an original fiction short story contest called...well...Original Fiction Contest. The challenge is for people to write an original short story using their own twist on the vampire lore. It will run for two months, and the winners will be announced on MVF's 1st Anniversary (Hallowe'en!).  Entries are being accepted now and until October 9, 2010, and voting will start on Oct 10 and last through to the 30th.  MVF is really excited about this contest and hope to get some "bites". So put on your original thinking caps and get to work! Show us what YOU can come up with!

Although they love all the male characters of Twilight, Team SOB shares with the Fanfiction Universe their adoration for their favorite Native American. They are not limited to Team Jacob, though. Oh, no. They are equal opportunists and their blog is a place where everyone is "sort of beautiful". So, come and join their party and be sure to follow them on Twitter!

You wouldn't believe the number of hits you will receive to your contest, and the more hits = the more entries = extra creativity within the Fandom! And, of course, if you are looking for a contest to enter, be sure to check out The Twilight Awards...there are so many different awards available to enter.

The Twinklings

'The Twinklings Community is basically a group of Twihards made up of the TC staff, guest reviewers, and you!  TTC is primarily a place where Twific authors can get feedback on their work from the staff members, and from specific guest reviewers, sans the pressure of large audiences and "formal" publication on or twilighted. It is where fics can grow into wonderful stories worthy of recognition. We pride ourselves on helping new authors get a good grasp of the Twific community.
