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.
One of my sci-fi short stories, Alicorn 2108, is competing in an online indie authors competition this month. While the rules state that I can’t encourage people to vote directly for my story, I can encourage you to read the stories and vote.
Une de mes nouvelles de science-fiction (en anglais), Alicorn 2108, est en lice ce mois-ci pour un concours d’écriture en ligne. Les règlements exigent que je n’encourage personne à voter pour moi directement; on nous demande de jouer « fair » et d’encourager la lecture de toutes les nouvelles et le vote du meilleur texte.
