The contest has officially ended now. Thank you to everyone who submitted. I now have enough reading material to settle down with a cup of peppermint mocha coffee and read the duration of my holiday. Special thanks to those that submitted illustrations.
I will read these and announce the winners prior to Christmas Eve. We have had an astounding 28 entries. If you do not see your name listed here and can provide confirmation that you submitted prior to Dec. 16th.. please contact me privately.
These are listed here in NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
If I have misspelt your name I apologize. If you do not see your name here, and again.. can confirm you submitted prior to Dec 16, please contact me privately.
Please be patient on the winners.. I do have to go through and read each one, and make my selection at that time. The books should be available for purchase (hopefully before christmas.. ) by January 1st. This is a plume in the hat of every single person who ever stepped foot in a steamland and you should all be very proud of yourselves. Flash Fiction is the shortest of genres, but it is also one of the hardest. To take a story, fashion into something cohesive, engaging and ultimately enjoyable, within 600 words is (as a friend so aptly put it) akin to “trying to write in hell”.
So many thanks, and keep your eye here for the announcement.
