So I wrote a short story, called it Ship Desolate, entered it into a contest and forgot about it.
It sat there in the back of my head until one day I got an astonishing email:
Your story has been judged and is a Silver Honorable Mention for the 3rd quarter.
Yay! Now I’m working with a local artist on the cover. (I’ve seen his first drawing of the ship and it’s beautiful! Once that’s done, I’ll publish it on Amazon. I’ll keep you posted!
