Happy news!

I have long been a fan of The Literary Lab and so was doubly excited to find out I won the top prize in their Variations on a Theme contest!

These folks not only organized and judged the contest, they also put up their own money for the winners. It's clear that they love fiction and are doing their part to spread their love. 

This anthology, their third, will be available in March. In the mean time, I hope you'll support their effort to promote good writing by checking out the first two

You know what else is cool? That when I look at the names of the other authors whose work will be included, I recognize quite a few  from having interacted with them at the Lit Lab blog. And let me tell ya, the comments section is half the fun over there. Davin, Scott, and Michelle chime in often, and do a great job in creating a fun and welcoming place to discuss and ask questions. It's no wonder they have a loyal following. 

So, while you enjoy reading the diverse works from these anthologies, I will go resume my happy dance!

I couldn't be happier for you, Yat-Yee!

When I saw your name at the top I literally said "WOO HOO!" out loud LOL. The title of your story intrigues me and I am curious about your variation on the theme whichever story you chose (I tried to think up something for them and just drew a total blank on both) tricky stuff, and you DID IT!!!

Again, congratulations!

Thanks, guys! Bru: it makes my heart glad to know somebody else shares my joy! I actually had half an idea brewing at the back of my head when the contest started, and somehow it just seems to fit.
