Hello everyone and welcome to the very LAST giveaway for Once Upon a Time. There have been some amazing stories and I can't wait for the book to be done and in your hot little hands! There will only be a first prize for the winner of G5 but like the other giveaways I will post the top 3 when the winner is announced. (Although being the last giveaway I'm tempted to post all entries up so everyone can see the awesome work. Let me know if you don't want this to happen when you enter your story in)
I have also decided to extend the Cover & Title Contest so that it ends on the same deadline as G5. We only have a couple of entries so far so please spread the word. Hopefully in the next week or so I will attempt to create one as well (it's been a while since I used Photoshop) and post it up for you all for some inspiration.

Conditions of Entry
All work posted for Once Upon A Time Project is (c) copyrighted and no work is to be reproduced in any way (e.g. copying, broadcasting, making available on another website etc) without the Authors permission.
I will not be held responsible if this does occur, but I will do everything I can to ensure this does not happen.
Warnings will be in bold red text at the beginning of the winning entries post if any of these stories include sexual content, swearing etc (depending on the words I may also *** out some) and if you continue to read this is your choice. Obviously any *** that are entered will be taken out before the book is published.
Note: Please take the time before entering your stories to make sure you have gone through and picked up on any mistakes, punctuation etc as this may affect your overall story when judging takes place. You will all have a chance to go through and fix up any mistakes on previous winning entries at the end of the giveaway as long as the story does not change.
