Before I announce the winners, a BIG thank you to those who voted and left comments for the stories. It’s a lot of work to read through 20 stories and I appreciate your efforts.

And now for the winners…

Like last year, we’re starting off with a tie in the first category. Both stories received the same number of votes.

I commend each of you who submitted stories on your commitment to writing and your courage in submitting your story for public review. Way to go!

Each story will receive a critique sent to the email address used to submit the story. However, due to the apocalypse I mentioned earlier this morning, it may take a few weeks to get them all done.

Authors of non-winning stories, if you’d like me to add your name to your story post, please send me an email. I’ll also link to your blog or website if you want.

We’ll be doing this again next year so start thinking of story lines now! Submissions for the 2013 Christmas Story Contest will open on November 1st. Guidelines for the contest are posted HERE.

Comments on this entry are closed.
