contest

Close One Door

So the “Another World” contest with Inkitt has ended and sadly, my stories didn’t quite get up there.

HOWEVER.

Inkitt is having a new contest! I’ve updated my sidebar Contest menu to reflect that.

The links are the same, and if you voted at all last time you can use the same account. I’m hoping that since I jumped on this quicker my stories will have a fighting chance!

When I get home tomorrow after work I plan on selecting a great excerpt from TAK and uploading that.

You can vote for more than one story, so if you want to vote for both, you can. Or if you want to vote for one of mine to show support and then vote for another story, that’s okay too!

If you vote on my stories and you have stories of your own posted, leave the link in the comments section and I’ll check it out to return the favour!

We should all help each other when we can.

Sorry in advance for the irritating posts that are going to NAG YOU TO VOTE in the coming weeks.

Well, maybe I’m not that sorry 😛

VOTE FOR MY STORIES!

Please? Could you please vote? I want to thank all of those who have! It means a lot to have people outside family and friends believe in my work.

If you want to vote, you can do so here:  &

I haven’t won anything in terms of writing contests since high school so it would be so cool and a huge boost of my self-esteem if I were to even get into the top 10! Right now I’m sitting at 52 and 62 I think.

Please, find it in your hearts to boost this poor little fledgling writer 😀

On the flip side, I’ve applied for a couple freelancing jobs. Mainly just data entry but it’s still extra money. One of the jobs seems to be ongoing which would be nice. It would bring in an extra 100-200 a month. But I have to win it first!

I also submitted my first article for the Parent Life Network blog. I’m waiting to hear about that. This one is a volunteer job but I thought it would help me build my portfolio 🙂

Hopefully something works out!

While I’m working on TAK I’m going to see the effort involved in getting Black & Red published in paperback form. I might be able to reach more readers that way.

This, of course, is when I think I have time. I teach tonight and I have kickboxing again tomorrow (I’m gonna die, I swear).

I’ll find time…..somewhere….I could always sleep when I’m dead, right?

Sorry not Sorry

I don’t want to be that annoying person filling up your feeds with the same thing over and over and over, especially if you follow me on different platforms.

If you recall, I entered a writing contest. This contest depends on votes to determine the winner. More and more people are joining it seems and my rank is dropping lower and lower and lower.

If you have a spare five minutes, please head over to: http://t.co/kfYjZZGfx2 and http://www.inkitt.com/stories/12258 to vote on one of my two short stories.

I believe the website requires you to create an account, which is free, which you can also delete once you are finished if you wish.

If you are a writer yourself you may want to keep your account as this seems like a nice platform for promotion.

I have three votes. Just three. Please help me rise up!!!
