And the Winner Is: Blogiversary Contest Results

After careful consideration while staring at a camp fire this weekend, I have chosen a winner of the Blogiversary contest I announced a little over a month ago. Before I announce the winner, I would like to thank everyone who entered. I really enjoyed all of the stories that were submitted. I am hoping to be able to offer more of these sorts of events and writing exercises in the future.

The winner receives a signed copy of Cutlass and Musket: Tales of Piratical Skullduggery and their story will be posted along with the 2nd place entry on the blog tomorrow morning. (I was just going to post them here with the announcement, but the stories deserve their own headline and word of mouth advertising.)

Without further ado, here are the results:

WINNER: Three Weeks by J.A. Belfield

2nd Place: Blink by Jocelyn Adams
Honorable Mention: The Anniversary by R.C Kinkead

Congratulations, Julie. Looks like I will be sending another package across the pond.

Thanks again to everyone for making my first blog contest a success!!

  2. Congrats, Jo, on coming second, and to R.C. Kincaid for his honorary mention. And thanks, Rebecca, for running the contest. It was a real fun promt for me that got me out of a writing funk when I needed a kick up the rear. :)

  3. Congrats, J.A. and Jocelyn. And an Honorable Mention for me? :D

  4. RC: Loved your story and the premise behind it. I can see why your wife was so disturbed after reading it. If it hadn't been for a missing spit shine, it may have knocked Ms. Belfield off the top spot.

  5. Wheeee! Congrats, Julie! Your story was awesome. Yay, I came second!!!! Congrats to RC, too. Thanks for inspiring my twisted little mind to conjure, Rebecca. Glad you enjoyed it.

  6. Congrats all! Nice prize :D
