Firstly, two great contests find themselves in full, um, gear. KV Taylor asks what nasty (fictional) villain or other undesirable you might bring to a Halloween party. Barry Napier wants recommendations for quality, online dark fiction at his blog. Try 'em out. You might win something fun.
Secondly, Cate Gardner will be cheering on our NaNoWriMo
Thirdly, 52 Stitches will change its look a little this Saturday (Halloween). I'm running a poll for font/background color suggestions. You can also use our newly purchased url: http://www.52stitches.com/ (which redirects to the blog). Yes, I've given up--the "official" name of the site is 52 Stitches (in numeral form, not word). If you don't know what I'm talking about, that's fine. I'm not sure I do, either. (I tried sooooo hard for Fifty-Two Stitches to stick...but the url is sooooo much easier this way. Ease=more memorable.)
Finally, I'm thrilled that "Inked" will find itself in this year's Every Day Fiction anthology. Of the four pieces I've had in EDF, "Inked" was the one which received the most derisive comments. Go figure.
Happy Monday, everyone.
