Like Rachel by Susan Auten
Over the next few weeks, I’ll do in-depth critiques on every story and send them to the authors. I’ll also post shorter critique and commentary on the story posts. Be patient. These are long stories and it will take me some time to get through all of them.
As for the book. . .I need to finish the critiques first to see if we have enough stories to make a book. My guess is we probably will, but some of the stories will need a bit of re-writing first. I’ll post the list of stories that made the cut when I have it ready.
Thanks to everyone who submitted stories—and to all those who took the time to read, comment and vote for them.
Now, for the poll in the sidebar (scroll down to see it)—what other types of story contests do you want to do? Go vote.
We’ll definitely do another Christmas contest in a few months, so get started on a story. Word length: 2,000—3,000.
P.S. If you’re an author of a story and you want to take credit for it, you can either post your ID in the comments or send me an email and I’ll put your byline at the top of your story and link it to your blog/website.
I will not post your identity unless you tell me to do so or you divulge it in a comment.
