Breaking News!

To make you all wriggle and squirm with impatience, I thought I'd let you know that the remaining winning stories (ages 14-17) have been chosen for First, Second, Third, and Honorable Mention in the Circle C Adventures/Beginnings short-story writing contest.

What happens next?

1. I have to format (and lightly edit, if necessary, for typos and fitting on the pages template) the winning entries . . . and get a final page count.

2. Then I have to create a cover spread for the book and upload it to a printer. Once I get the books in my hand, THEN I will privately email the winners. After all winners have been notified, I will announce the winners in the Ezine and on this blog.

3. I will mail the prizes to the winners and put the book up here on the blog (and on the website) so if anyone wants to buy one, they may. The winning stories will also be posted on the blog . . . probably one at a time . . . for your enjoyment (if you don't want to have them all together in a hard-copy book.)
