I have theories, but no real explanation how this happened. It just did.
There is a third winner to the short story contest. Somehow the story didn't get posted for the judges to read. I have poled a few and this story should also be recognized as a winner.
All I can do is sincerely apologize and say that we have three winners! Yes, how's that for a cool contest? No entry fee and three winners!
So... here ya go! The envelope please. (Do a drum roll, if you are so inspired to such things.)
Our third winner, or second winner in the published writer category, goes to BOSTWICK BLUES by Don Blinebry! Yeah Don. You are in good company with Jo Smith and Peggy Nolan.
So how about it you three, may I post your winning entries on my blog? Please answer in the comment section or send me an email.
BTW, I'm very honored that everyone took the time to enter my first ever writing contest with the total prize money now adding to $150 USD.
I will get the comments put together for all of the writers and the judges to see. If the judges spotted something you need to work on, you're miles ahead in knowing than you were a few weeks ago - and these judges are a tough audience. If I'd judged, everyone would have won because there is something special about each story submitted, and I'd be broke - so it is better this way.
