Smashwords to Distribute Our Remixed Vampire Novel

To celebrate Mediabistro’s upcoming Media App Summit, we are hosting a writing contest to rewrite a Victorian vampire novel for fun and prizes.

Follow this link to sign up for our new writing contest.  We will publish and distribute the rewritten novel as a free digital book through Smashwords, so it will be available at the Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo, the Diesel eBook Store, Blio.com and others.

Registration closes on Oct 8, 2012. GalleyCat has all the details: “With the help from writers around the country, we will rewrite Varney the Vampire–a bestselling vampire novel from the 19th Century filled with enough star-crossed romance, vampire action and purple prose to inspire another Twilight trilogy. You can rewrite a small section from the book your own unique style (from poetry to Twitter updates to cartoons to imitations of your favorite writer).”
