Last week I got an email informing me that I was one of three First Prize winners in Melissa Marr's Radiant Prose writing contest. I didn't believe it at first, but it's sunk in now. The prize is a $25 Apple giftcard and a signed copy of Melissa's newest book, Radiant Shadows. I am totally thrilled. :D

ALSO, Chris is having three short stories published at Flash Shot, which features a daily flash fiction story. His first one will appear on September 21st.

I've finally snapped, gone completely mad. I've been moderating [ profile] told_tales for about 3 years now, and in the course of that done over 50 little blurb reviews of fairy tale/mythology/folklore adaptations of one sort or another. So now I've moved all of them to Fairy Layers (cause, get it, richlayers / fairy layers?) on a timed release program. My dream/ideal/goal is to have one every day for... a year? A few years? I certainly read/watch/listen to enough fairy tale adaptations in different mediums. So if people click on a google adsense link, then all the better.

BUT the idea that it would be every day will be key, because people can go anywhere for reviews, and most of them more in depth than mine (especially since I hate spoilers -- even when I already know the story). But a little introduction to something you maybe haven't heard of before? Every day? Nobody has all the exact same cross section of books and movies of things. So. That's my idea.

Feel free to check it out -- there are a couple entries up already and more to come every day! Leave me any feedback you might have or care to comment on, here or there.


In other news, I have been writing quite a bit more (reviews aside) and have one editor holding a poem for possible publication, as well as other things out and about in the world looking for homes. So wish me luck!
