Well I’ll be hornswoggled—I won a fiction contest!
Yeah, yeah, I was the only entry. But still!
The story is called “Te Absolvo,” which is Latin (or something) for “I forgive.” It’s my take on a famous historical personage, whose identity you’ll probably guess easily. I hope you enjoy it. You can read it here at The Soap Boxers blog.
While you’re there, knock around a bit. Read Kosmo and some of the other writers at the site. That ought to keep you out of trouble for a while, heh heh.
I see your “hornswoggle” and raise you a hoodwink. Congrats on the award–love the story. Very nicely done.
Thank you Christopher! I’m rather fond of that little tale. It was fun to write. :)
Well congrats to you Elizabeth. Keep up the writing.
Thank you, Wanda! :)
I’ll admit that I was disappointed to not receive more entries. However, better to get one good story than a bunch of others.
I enjoyed the story. Crime fiction is also my preferred genre. I’m working on a serial killer novel.
Note to readers: I’m giving away a $5 Amazon gift card to a random commenter. So if you leave a response to Elizabeth’s story (on my site), you have a chance to win. Just be sure to include your email address in the relevant spot, so that I can contact you (the address doesn’t get published).
Maybe we can think of a way to advertise it next time so more people participate.
