O Come All Ye Fangful – Winners!!

I’d like to thank everyone who entered my first short story contest. I was thrilled to receive thirty-four entries. So thrilled, in fact, that I dug right in and started reading them, which is why I’m announcing the winners a couple days earlier than I’d expected to!

I do encourage anyone who entered to share their stories on their own blogs or websites. And please post the link here in the comments so everyone can check out your marvelous prose! You all rock!!! I wish I had prizes for everyone. But, alas, I do not.

That said, I’m very pleased to announce the stories I’ve chosen as my winners and each will be featured here on my blog for all to read starting on Sunday, December 20th……….

    Congratulations to all the winners.

    I read Barbara story, I must say it’s pretty good. I enjoyed it. And I read Vanessa story. She’s good too. I enjoyed both of their stories.

    To all have a good Christmas and a happy New Year.

    Gah!!
    I’m soooo proud of you, Cari! 2nd place is just super awesome!! I read and loved the story already of course, but hot damn!

    This from the girl that didn’t even care if she placed. LOL

    I love that you did this Michelle. I hope to participate in the next one. What a great way to give back to your readers who just happen to be writers.
