Hello, Fantasy fans! Much-loved and acclaimed bestselling YA Fantasy author Tamora Pierce has very kindly offered to write a short story (flash fiction), for a generous Read For Pixels donor.

This is a rare and unique opportunity and if you are interested in donating to get it, please read the terms & conditions set out by Tamora before you proceed as you will be expected to honour and abide by them:


  1. This is all about supporting The Pixel Project’s “Read for Pixels” campaign in a fun way. I am donating this reward with good cheer, and the donor agrees to accept the reward in the same spirit.
  2. I, Tamora Pierce, agree to write a short story (flash fiction) set in the TORTALL canon for the donor who claims this “Read for Pixels” perk.
  3. This story will be exclusive to the donor for the minimum of twelve (12) months. However, the donor also acknowledges that I and my publishers retain the right to publish the short story in whatever edition or form it may take in the future after twelve (12) months have passed from the date the story is emailed to the donor.
  4. I am not obligated to show the donor the short story prior to its completion. If I do so, it will be as a courtesy and will not bind me to make any changes requested by the donor.
  5. I promise to email a soft typed copy of the short story to the donor and to send a signed original handwritten copy of the short story to the donor free of charge to the address they provide. I also have the right to include any additional gifts, such as buttons, pens, free books, pocket lint, or magic potions as I see fit.
