A Flash Fiction Contest for THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE!

Folks, I’ve made it. I have arrived.  🙂

Well, that’s more or less what one of my writer friends (Micki, I’m looking at you) tweeted out; “You know you’ve made it when offers a contest in your honor!”

And yes, indeed Ms. Janet, NYC literary agent extraordinaire and Director of Literary Services at New Leaf Literary and Media, Inc., is doing just that.  There is a Flash Fiction contest this weekend in honor of THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE’s Next Indie Pick selection and the fact that the book is soon to be released!  (only a month away!)

For about five years, I’ve participated in these contests.  I’ve won some, had numerous finalist mentions, long list mentions, and several special recognition mentions.  The competition is fierce because the writers who hang out there are some of the best I know.  They have 100 words  (the word limit for these FF contests) to spin a story that incorporates a beginning, middle and end.  Some of the entries from past contests have taken my breath away, made me laugh, or made me sit in awe, while wondering how did they do that?

The prize?  Well, a copy of THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE – of course!

Good luck, y’all!  I can’t wait to read your entries!

    I can’t wait to name-drop you. “Yes, I knew her before she hit it big. We swam together on the reef.”

      Oh pshaw! (I’ve always wanted to use that word somehow.) Trust me, if you name drop mine, there will be the sound of…crickets. 😉

    One day I’m going to tally up your finalist nods, Donna. You’ve had a fair few, I know that. And well deserved, too. Congratulations for this and all the pre-publication recognition DIXIE’s getting. I can’t wait to read it!! 🙂

      I thought of doing that once too, Colin – if I do, then I’ll let you know so you don’t waste your time! Thank you for all you’ve done – geez, I bet 25% of the purchases are b/c of you. Maybe more… 😉 Ha!

    Congratulations again dear. 72 entries at that. Of course I didn’t win but hopefully I got that dreadful Doris Day song stuck in a bunch of people’s heads for a while.

      Thanks Craig – and my Charlie Brown thought of the day with that earworm you gave us all was, “ACK, good grief, Craig! Thanks a lot!” 🙂


What's on your mind?
