In April, I submitted my sci-fi short story about spacefaring unicorns to an online independent authors competition.
Readers were invited to read each of the seven stories, then vote for their favourite.
At the end of the month, my short story, Alicorn 2108, had gathered nearly 65% of the vote – for the win -, and numerous positive comments from readers, some of which I’ll copy here:
« I did read all the stories, and there is really no contest. [Alicorn 2108] is far and away the best (even though I am not generally a fan of science fiction.) » – Ron P.
« [Alicorn 2108] was the best by far – a good story by any standards. » – Dave M.
« I loved [Alicorn 2108] – I also loved one of the others but I can’t remember the title – these are interesting & up-and-coming writers. [A.M. Matte] has a great imagination & talent. Also excellent language. » – Helen G.
« Wow I am impressed – I love the flow of [A.M. Matte’s] writing. She really takes you there. And the votes – everyone else is majorly impressed. » – Sheila B.
Thanks to D.R. Racey for holding the competition, and thanks to all who read and voted.
