A Competition Success…


Over at Alan W Davidson’s blog, Conversations From Land’s Edge, he recently hosted a competition to celebrate the first year anniversary of his blog.  The competition was open to any genre but had to be 750 words or under and to be based around a celebration.

Today he has announced the winners and honourable mentions and I am really pleased with coming in second place with my story The Millenium Princess.  Alan will be posting the winning story, Festival of the Lift by Mike Robertson of Columbia, today and then mine tomorrow Monday 5th July, followed by third placed K.M. McElhinny of Ohio and her story The Light and Shadows of Independence, which will be posted Tuesday 6th July.

There are also honourable mentions for Pablo Gully and Cathy Olliffe (stories will be posted on Weds, July 7), Anthony Venutolo and John Wiswell (Thursday, July 8), and Michael Solender and Anton Gully (Friday, July 9).

If you can, please find a bit of time in your day to read the above stories and to check out Alan’s blog.

A big thanks to Alan for hosting the competition.  ๐Ÿ™‚

You know the drill…….
