Hello and welcome to our brand new Once Upon a Time fan website!
Our Facebook fan group has grown exponentially since I joined as a member and later as an Admin. My name is Aaron Stephens and I am one of the Lead Admins for the Facebook group. In addition to being a web designer, I am also an international best-selling author. Hundreds or thousands of fans in this group are actually some of my fans on Facebook. I have over 200 thousand fans worldwide, mostly because of the book Angel Academy. It is an awesome little children’s story about a baby angel being born and then watching as he advances to determine what angel occupation he will choose. I hired an illustrator with a “Disney” style and voila! If you are curious, you can check it out by clicking the banner at the bottom of the website.
We are really excited about our new website as we will be able to list some cool things in one location. You might have noticed that our group newsfeed moves really fast on a daily basis. Some things like our contests, fan fiction, and the live stream will be easily accessible. Our website address is really easy to remember also. www.ouatfans.us. When the show is airing I stream the show live from Denver Colorado so some of our members can view it who cannot receive the broadcast in their country. I started this in another group I admin, abc Family Pretty Little Liars. If you like that show (on Netflix), you might like that group. Check out that website at: www.abcfamilyprettylittleliarsfan.us. They have their season premiere June 2nd.
As a writer I am also excited to write some “fan fiction”. If you are unfamiliar with the term it simply means someone who does not work for abc, is writing an alternate story using the characters from the show. What if a writer brought in another “world” to OUAT? In my book Angel Academy I brought in the mythical world of Atlantis. What if Atlantis somehow made it into OUAT? Or a character used a bean to be transported to Atlantis? That could be kind of cool. As a writer, your imagination has no limits.
We will be running some fan fiction contests in the group. I am sure there are talented writers in the group. We will actually repost your article/story in OUR website, rather than posting a link to your blog. We want original work on our site, and then you link it to your site. Cool? Writers will be credited on our site. Who knows, maybe a screenwriter or director would want you to come work for them? Our website will get thousands of hits daily just due to the sheer number of members in our group, and the members in Pretty Little Liars who will be joining soon.
