Two stories win first place in Good Guy’s Publishing Flashy Short’s Competition

The both happened to win first place over at Good Guy Publishing and another story “Fallen Awake” was also mentioned as an honorable mention. So I think three stories will be published. I actually think these three are really great stories and if you are a fan of something a bit more washed with wonder, you should pick up this edition when it comes out.

Just send me an email to with a link to your blog and a couple of your reviews you have already written.
