Congratulations to Ann Graham, energywriter and essentialphoto for winning the “Nightfire!” contest!
No, they didn’t win a red, classic Corvette Stingray like the one that shot through Mexico with Día and Luna under a hail of bullets…something slightly more mundane: a $20 Amazon gift card. Hey, I am on a writer’s budget. But they also won something else: my deep appreciation for taking time to read my short story. Any writer will tell you that to them, finding readers of books, blogs, poetry, short stories, limericks, signs, fortune cookies…readers…is a heart-warming experience that keeps hope for the world burning in their hearts.
In case you missed this, I took my short story, “Nightfire!”, and serialized it over six days. On the seventh day, I asked a question about the story and had three gift cards to give to three winners for a correct answer. For six days I tweeted about the contest and promoted it heavily over social media. I hope it was not to an annoying degree. I might have been the only one having fun, but I confess to having enjoyed doing it.
I have other free bonuses and reads that are supplementary to the novels The Z Redemption and Corvette Nightfire, the latter done with story contributions by editor-and-poker extraordinaire, Robert Selfe. Many people have said these are fun. So here is your link to them: Click here to have fun (heh, heh.)
Congratulations and thanks, again, to the winners. To all writers out there who happen to see this blog post, I salute you and offer this, my brothers and sisters: Animo! Keep writing from your heart and soul, and enjoy the best life of all!
