in 2009 Christmas

Thank you to everyone who submitted a story and to those who read them and commented and voted. I was really pleased with the variety and the selection this year.

As always, I will make comments on each of these stories during the week, giving you my opinion on what was done well and what needed a little more polish. If you’re not a winner and you’d like to take credit for your story, you may do so in the comments section.

Drum roll, please. . .

Wow. I haven't managed to say much else since reading this post. Angie stole my comments (perhaps I ought to have copyrighted that response, hmm…). Congratulations, LT, Angie and Gussie. And what an amazing crop of stories we've enjoyed this past week. Fantastic!
(And there are a number I'm crossing my fingers will be included in the book!)
