Spooked, my round five entry has been picked up by Australian magazine Fast Fiction. Surprisingly, or perhaps not so surprisingly, Spooked wasn't one of my trio of round winners. In fact, it bombed.
However, I always felt Spooked was a strong story - humorous and with a vivid setting; the action takes place in a Scottish castle. Just goes to show that competition judges and editors (and authors) can have wildly differing opinions about the same piece of work.
That's it for this week. Fingers crossed for more good news next time.
