Bite Me!

Received an email from Paige McCoy the editor of Necrotic Tissue yesterday to say that my story 'Halloween Watch' (still not loving that title), along with a few others, had survived all cuts and slices from over 60 submissions. I should add this is for their 100 word Bite Contest. Now it's a case of keeping my fingers crossed that I don't hear back until August 1st when they will be announcing the winner, runners up and those folks who have made it into the issue. If I hear back before it means I'm out...*

*Note to family & friends: Please don't buy any more nail varnish or manicure sets for me as I have no longer have nails on my fingers... Chocolate however is still approved.

I got the same email, "Miss Molly's Scarecrow" is still in the running : ) Luckily I cut my fingernails down short anyway.

Woot! Woot! Woot!

I'll gnaw mine for us both.

very VERY cool. Best of luck, and don't worry about those fingernails. Blood on the keyboard indicates a rigorous work ethic...
