New Award from Writers of the Future!!!

Very exciting news came my way yesterday from Joni Labaqui and the staff at the Writers of the Future contest. My short story “The Truth Behind the Hero” – which focuses on a self-made superhero being manipulated by a corporation – has just received a Silver Honorable Mention in the 2nd quarter of this year’s contest. That means that the story ranked among the top 50 stories for that quarter, out of the probably thousands of stories that Writers of the Futures receives from all around the world. Not too shabby!

As I mentioned when I received my previous Honorable Mention, Writers of the Future is one of the premiere ways to break into the speculative fiction market, so it’s great to be moving up the ranks in the contest. The next step is to get a story into the top 3, and then win the whole damn thing 🙂

Meanwhile, I’ll be seeking a home for the “The Truth Behind the Hero” – any suggestions of markets that like superhero stories, feel free to let me know.
