All’s fair in love and literature

Frankly, everyone who published here in September is a winner just for getting in. Read ALL the stories!

Well, the voting is over, gang, and I didn’t win. Which is okay. I didn’t really stand a chance in this. For one thing, I got on the voting bandwagon a full week after it started and just a couple of days before it ended, so the other stories had the jump on me. For another thing, the winning author promoted the heck out of his story, “An Upside Down Flier for a Ferris Wheel,” and he seems to have gobs of readers at his blog, too. And finally, the winning story is damned good. So, hats off, people! And congrats to Dillon J. Welch!

Still, I made a fair enough showing in this thing — at the last minute! — to sneak into third place! And that’s thanks to you all. Thanks, everybody! My heart has warm cockles. 🙂

  1. Re your warm cockles…

    You flexed your mussels and winkled a few votes out of us. Will you now clam up about the vote, or is it rather shellfish of me to ask?
