Dog Days of Summer Flash Fiction Contest Winner


I've just had some wonderful news – Michael J Solender of Not From Here Are You? Has just announced my story, The Pit of Hades, as the winning entry in his Dog Days of Summer flash fiction contest.

*pauses till the wild applause subsides*

It really was a great contest, and not a little bit challenging, having to fit an entire story, plus two specific words, into only 101 words. Michael tells me there were close on 100 entries to the contest, which have now been compiled into the Dog Days of Summer 2010 chapter book. Congratulations to everyone who entered, there's a wealth of fantastic flash fiction in the book, and a special thank you to Michael, obviously a man of excellent taste, for choosing my story as the contest winner.

If you'd like a peek at the book, here it is:

Don't forget to head over to Michael's blog to read the interview with yours truly.
