Family Fiction Create Romance Contest

Attention loyal readers (yes I mean both of you). I have submitted a short-short story (less than 1000 words) to’s Create Romance contest.

What this means to me: I chance to be included in a Short fiction anthology of the top 200, or if I make the top 20 a $50 gift card to Christian

What this means to you: The opportunity to go to and vote for my story. you can find it here:

Before you can vote you must first register your email address. The directions are at the top of the page.

My Story, “A Meeting Beneath the Black Light,” is very obvious from the title. Girl meets boy at a Halloween event where black lighting is being utilized. For those who require deeper themes in their fiction consider it the story of a lonely college student, who learns that being yourself is a little overrated and that maybe becoming something else is the easiest way to truly be yourself.

If you like it come back and leave a comment.

    I really enjoyed your story! You have an awesome talent for writing and it shows! If I could ask you a quick question regarding the Family Fiction contest: I recently submitted a romance story as well but it’s been almost a week and hasn’t shown up online yet. How long did you have to wait before yours posted? Thanks for the reply, and God bless with the contest!

      First off Thank you for your comment and I am sorry it took so long for me to reply. I am glad that you liked my story. As far as the posting goes it took mine the better part of three weeks from the time I submitted it to the time it showed up online. It drove me mad waiting for it to show up. I kept thinking that maybe it wasn’t good enough or maybe they never got it. But my story made it through the first round judges and I’m sure yours will too, I look forward to reading it when it’s posted.
