I have some news that makes me VERY happy!
I am thrilled to be one of the top 10 runner-ups in the 2015 Short Story Contest.
You'll be able to read all the stories in October. (and once again, I have to give my pal Earl Staggs a shout out for great editing!! Thank you, Earl!).
If you're not familiar with Southern Writers Magazine, do check it out. It's pretty wonderful and features some top notch writers (in addition to those of us nobody's ever heard of). The latest issue features Tess Gerritsen, so it's not "just" for Southern writers.
Here's their announcement - (squeeeeeeee!)
