Blog Fog

Hi All: Choking on too much information? Ever get the feeling that you want to detach yourself from the assault of blogs, conversation, and visual overkill? I'm not a professional ranter, but there are times when you just want to scream, "Stop it already!" Read my latest e-sheet at short, sweet, and pithy. This is one rant that I want to share with as many of my blogger friends as possible.

Second Annual Warren Adler Short Story Writing Contest

It has often been said that there are infinite story possibilities about this fabled city of hopes and dreams, and from the number of entries pouring in from around the world, we believe it's true. Share your imagination and talent with us at 2,500 words or less. Deadline is January 15, 2008. See rules and submission guidelines.

First prize, to be announced in conjunction with the publication of Warren Adler's latest short story collection New York Echoes, will be awarded $1,000; five finalists will also be awarded personalized first editions of Mr. Adler's collection.

As a bonus the story judged best by Mr. Adler, along with a People's Choice award chosen from among the finalists via online reader vote, will be published and available for sale on Amazon Shorts, the short stories available for sale on Amazon. In addition all five finalist stories will be featured via "live" readings on Amazon's theater on Second Life.

All work must be submitted on-line, along with a $15 fee per entry. Finalists retain all except non-exclusive internet-only rights and/or a six-month exclusive deal with Good luck.
