It’s award season for stories published in 2023, and I do have one for you to consider with a deadly game of chance! (And a bestselling nonfiction book, too, but more on that toward the end.)
Joshua Palmatier and Stephen Kotowych of the GAME ON! anthology from Zombies Need Brains, LLC, have authorized me to share my story “The Saltmarsh” from their anthology!!! For a limited time, for voting consideration in the Critters Readers’ Choice Awards and any other awards you may wish to nominate it in, I’ve been given permission to make a free copy of my story available to each of you. Here’s the link for you to get yours!
The editors told me as soon as they read the story, they immediately put it on the buy pile, no further consideration, they wanted it in their anthology. That’s the mark of a strong story. Would you like to find out why? Now’s your chance! I’ve been waiting to write this story for many years, and this was the perfect anthology for it. Ever since I read H. Munro’s short poem “Overheard on a Saltmarsh” about a nymph and a goblin, I wanted more, more, more.
This story was my answer.
If you agree with the editors, they’d love it if you weighed in with your vote. But you need to hurry. Voting, at least in the Critters Awards, ends in five days on January 14th!
(And if you’d like to weigh in on Nonfiction Books, HOW TO WRITE A HOWLING GOOD STORY is in second place right now. It’s been a #1 bestseller in multiple categories since its release. Here’s where you can help if you believe my book is worthy: Critters Writers Workshop Readers Poll )
(What? You still want to help? Okay, if you love what I do to help emerging writers, I’d love your support in the Authors category: Critters Writers Workshop Readers Poll )
I’m just happy I’ve been permitted to share my story with you. It’s different from my usual fare. Enjoy while you can! And THANK YOU for your consideration in these and other awards! The recognition does help your work to be seen and read.
