Fairy Tale Fortnight Event

I've signed up to write a guest post for the Fairy Tale Fortnight that will take place from mid April until the end of April. The event is being hosted by The Book Rat and Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing. As awesome as this event and my chance to do something new is, I have NO idea what my part in the event should be. I am completely stumped. More than stumped.... baffled.

I need ideas. Lots of ideas, actually. Here is what I thought of so far:
  • I could read some less known (or new) fairy tale retellings and write reviews. 
  • I could do a little research and try to find the history behind one or two of the Grimm's fairy tales. 
  • I could have a student write an original fairy tale and then post it. (I think they would get a kick out of knowing their story was on the web.) 
  • I could host a giveaway or two. Maybe some fairy tale-ish books, movies, etc. 
Other ideas are welcome. I feel very limited. What do guest posters typically write about? I have no idea. Please feel free to give me ideas. I desperately need them.       

Update

I figured a giveaway was a good excuse to go shopping, so off I went. BTW, Borders Books is going out of business. Good deals to be found if there is a Borders near you. Here is what I've gathered thus far for giveaway #1:

I love all things Disney!
This is a "Princess Minnie" collectible pin from Walt Disney World.
(One of the perks of having family near WDW.) 


Beautiful hardback picture book retelling of Sleeping Beauty.

Paperback of novel.


A picture book (with audio narration on c.d.) of Swan Lake.

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…
