NOTE: Thought you'd like to have a simple contest to start off the new year. Especially without an entry fee. Decent prize money for only 500 words (or less). I love reading tight flash with an impact. It's so smart.
DOUBLE NOTE: Working on edits. I'm so glad it's January. The pace is slower. No more holiday obligations, and the only deadlines for me are writing-related. I've made most of the changes as requested, and I agree with about 99% of them (I'm pretty open-minded). But the changes have made me realize there might be the need for another book between book one and book two. Hmmm.
