Forever Contest Entry

So when Maggie announced the last FOREVER contest I had to think of something creative. My entry was inspired by Michelle's interview with Maggie Stiefvater @ GalleySmith:

Q: What is the one thing you want readers of The Wolves of Mercy Falls series to walk away from it with after they finish that final page?
A: Tissues.

Got it? I "designed" a WOLVES OF MERY FALLS tissue, because I already cried a lot during SHIVER and LINGER and am dying to read FOREVER and cry while reading!

The Tissue:

The Plan:

The Material:

The Result: WOLVES OF MERCY FALLS tissue (click to enlarge)

Tadaa- The ultra absorbent THE WOLVES OF MERCY FALLS poem tissue!
Maggie, consider me prepared for FOREVER!;) 


Out of warmth and out of cold,
A mind starts rattling, an author sworn,
An epic love story was born,
Grab your feel-good cookies and tissues for the saddest story ever told!

How it started...

* Picture: Shiver cover and the lonely wolf

How it went...

* Picture: Linger and Forever cover to show that Sam and Grace are slowly drifting apart

And how it's probably going to end...

* Picture: Lonely woods with two broken hearts, to show that Maggie is a cruel cruel author and everything is possible:D

What might help to stop the grief:

* Picture: a paper crane and the hope and wishes it stands for

And in what we all believe...

* Picture: Maggie's April fool cover displaying a happy end
