My second short story (the first one I wrote), "The Expiry Dates," goes live at www.brokenpencil.com/deathmatch tomorrow, Monday, Jan. 31. Yes, only the publishing world could set this right, accepting my first story second but still publishing it before the first one appeared. (Aria di Gelato will be in The Nashwaak Review in Spring/Summer 2011.)
But for now, please (read and) vote for The Expiry Dates in this ultra-cool, online elimination tournament, and help me rise to the top of the Indie Writers' world (in Canada, this week).
Voting runs Jan 31 to 11:59pm Feb 7, and you can VOTE ONCE PER HOUR, PER IP ADDRESS, so get those smartphones ready.
Thank you for your ongoing support. Oh, and enjoy the story!!
