Winners Announced at The Literary Lab

The Literary Lab just announced the winners of their latest contest "Variations on a Theme", and I'm thrilled that my short story Varcy And The Girl Who Said No is one of them.

You can go here to see the other winners and the stories that will be included, as well as the two who took the top money prizes. The collection is slated to be published on March 15th, the Ides of March. That's just how cool the folks at the Literary Lab are.

Special thanks to Michelle Davidson Argle, Davin Malasarn, and Scott Bailey for all their support and the hard work that made this possible. To echo one of my fellow contestants...."YeeHaw! I'm in!"

Congratulations to you and all the other winners, Yvonne! I feel so unfortunate that I wasn't able to participate this year; too much going on with my studies... But, I get a vicarious cheer just knowing you all did a great job. I can't wait to buy the anthology and read all the winning stories! Woohoo!!!
