Secondly, I received an email from Crystal Lake Publishing concerning the Tales From the Lake contest I entered. The judges liked my synopsis/story beginning and have chosen it among 34 others for the final round of the contest. If I place, this could mean very big things for me, as my story will be gracing the same pages as some well-known names in the horror genre (Ramsey Campbell and Jack Ketchum among others).
Stoked is a word that comes to mind. I now have 25 days to write a story that doesn't exist. I got this!
