Self-Published Fantasy Month 2021 Daily Challenge

Last year we hosted a Daily Photo Challenge, but we’re evolving it a bit this time around! Have an e-reader filled with hundreds of books, but a little light on physical books? Too busy to snap photos? DO NOT FRET! Rowena and Maria have put together an awesome list of prompts, and invite you take part by sharing in any way you see fit. We’ll be posting the prompts daily on Twitter, so feel free to respond there, as well. Tweet, share on Instagram or anywhere you so choose, but be sure to tag us and/or use the hashtag #spfmchallenge so we can share the love. Now feast your eyes on the SPFM Daily Challenge Calendar!
