First, congratulations to all the winners in Literary Lab's Genre Wars contest: Frances O'Brien (Grand Prize, also YA/Children/MG), Judith Mercado (Literary), Jason King (Experimental), E. J. Alexander (SciFi/Fantasy), Donna Thorland (Horror/Crime), and Susan James (Romance/Women's). Please click over over the contest results and offer your congratulations to those winners and to read the lab editors' reflections on the contest.
Secondly, I'm pleased to announce that two of my short stories, "The Best Medicine" and "Death, Be not Me," were selected for inclusion in the anthology that will be published from te contest entries. I will have some thoughts and reflections on that later this week, but in the mean time, please click over to the page and cast your vote for which charity should receive the proceeds from the anthology. There are links to in-depth interviews with the three charities being considered, each of which is doing some great things.
