Voting has now closed to find the top three favourite stories in the Joe Hunter style short story competition I've been running. All ten entries were excellent - remember that you can still read them all at http://joehuntersfixers.blogspot.com/ and that all the anonymous tales will be credited to their respective authors at the end of the comp following final voting.
The top three stories are:
Short Story No 1 A Long Time Coming
Short Story No 6 Firestorm
Short Story No 7 Gallance
Congratulations to the top three short-listed entries, they move on to the second round of voting, starting today (Sat 20th until Thurs 31st March midnight GMT).
Please remember to vote for your favourite from the TOP THREE both at Thrillers Killers 'N' Chillers http://thrillskillsnchills.blogspot.com/ AND HERE AT Matt Hilton Thrills.
This is just a bit of fun, so please keep things fair folks. No Facebook campaigns or engineering mass voting.
Well-meaning friends are welcome to vote, but please keep your story anonymous from them until after the competition ends (if they recognise your writing from the names of your series character then you can't be held responsible). It is, of course, better that the story wins by the quality and enjoyment of the writing, therefore the author gains the merit he/she is due.
To keep things fair, I have decided to start all three top stories off from a level ZERO points. So...let's start reading and voting.
