I have been absolutely horrible about keeping up with blogging lately, and I hope to get back into the swing of things this winter. However, I just wanted to post that TODAY is the last day for you to submit your story/poem/article/creative nonfiction piece for my writing contest! Five people will have their winning submissions printed in my January 2014 e-newsletter and will also receive a $15 gift card. You can see the rules for this contest here: Make sure you submit your piece by 11:59 p.m. TODAY!!!  🙂 Can’t wait to read your work!


Those of you who subscribe to my e-newsletter were introduced to this contest in the August issue, but I wanted to open it up to everyone else, too. From now through Monday, November 5, 2012, I am asking people to submit pieces of their own writing. These can include articles, poems, short stories, and creative nonfiction–nothing exceeding 5,000 words, please. The January issue of my e-newsletter will be the “Reader Issue,” and I, along with other judges, will select five of the submitted pieces to publish in the e-newsletter. The five winners will each receive a $15.00 gift card. To enter, email your submission to me at In the subject of your email, put “Reader Issue.” In the body of the email, list your name, address, email address, phone number, and the title and category of your work (article, poem, short story, or creative nonfiction) and then provide the work as an attachment. No more than two submissions per person, please.

Writing’s not your thing? There are still a few more days to submit your name for the drawing for Illegally Innocent, and there are a couple more weeks to submit your name for the drawing for Killer Colas on
