    Itís been a hectic day and I just finally got to see the results.

    Congrats CW, MLD, and Nikita!

    And to all my competitors throughout this contest, it has been a sensational experience to be associated with such talented and gracious folks. I hope we are able to keep in contact.

    You had a great run Draven! If it’s any consolation, when I checked the final round's contest submissions last night (they have since been moved) and sorted them by views, your story sat on top with the most views!

    Too cool. Well done. Just goes to show everyone that this is only the beginining for some, and not the end. And in typical horror fashion, I'd just like to say, thanks for raising my spirits.

    In the immense hopes of getting the valuable insights of my highly esteemed colleagues (how’s that for adjective abuse), I posted the first critique for my own story The Dark Caller in the Sharing Your Work sub-forum. If any of you can spare the time, I would appreciate any feedback, good or bad. And yeah, even Your Story Blows is welcomed as long as you tell me why.

    Thanks!
    -Mike

    I wanted to say several things but I'll go with the most pressing first--thank you all SO much, not only for those of you who voted for my story, but those who read and enjoyed it. I have written various stories but I was always so hesitant on submitting anything for fear it was never good enough. All the positive feedback I've received on this forum since this contest began has done wonders for my attitude and my motivation, and I truly thank you all.

    Also, thank you to the folks at Cemetery Dance for this opportunity to begin with. And I am sorry that I wasn't able to contribute to the conversations as much as I would have liked. Two jobs, a family...you guys have obligations as well so I'm sure you understand how tough it can be. But that's why I feel that I really have to make sure you all know how appreciative I am.

    And of course, congratulations to the finalists and to everyone who participated in the contest, win or lose. These were a fantastic group of stories and I am so looking forward to reading more of them.
    (Nik, I'm looking in your direction... )

    Congrats to all the winners! I just got back from vacation, and it looks like I missed the voting for round 2. Still, excellent stories!

    Dan,

    Can you give us an update on the publication of this Chapbook? I know it's around here somewhere but I sure as hell can't find it. My winning book title may be the
    closest I ever get to being published so I'm a little bit anxious. Thanks.

    Last I asked Brian, all the stories where with the proof reader. I'm hoping we should be able to get this out by the end of the year. It shouldn't take too long once we're through the proof reading / design phase.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm actually pretty excited about this as there are some great stories from the contestants which should be read by a larger audience.

    I'm guessing the artwork contest will be settled at that time as well Dan?
