I entered one of those "Find America's Next Writer!" contests. What this means to you is . . . free story!
If you click on the link I provide below, it'll take you to my author page on this contest site. Then you can click on "Read Online" or on "Download This" (or whatever the buttons say) in order to see my Splatterfairies story in its current form. I wrote this for a Pulphouse Publishing anthology, but they went out of business and closed down the anthology before it ever got published. I still think it's a cute story, even if it is a bit fey, twee, arch, and affected. LOL (You may or may not agree. Why don't you go and see?)
I already have one review from someone I don't know. I thought her review was pretty good!
You don't have to review it or vote on it, but if you want to see the story in final form, here's a chance to read it online! (If you do feel moved to vote for me, thank you in advance. I think they'll probably make you register on their site and all that rot.)

Check out my new mysteries, as well. Out now: the winner of the Oak Tree Press contest, NICE WORK (a pair of Snoop Sisters in their twenties who stumble upon a network of BDSM clubs and must investigate a killing of one of the members), and MURDER BY THE MARFA LIGHTS (a skeptic is tempted by the Marfa Mystery Lights while looking into the suspicious death of her former boyfriend). Coming soon: a new YA fantasy/adventure series starring my Genius Girls, April and June Bliss.
