Recently I also submitted the short version of Witchery Afoot into the America's Next Contest. As of today its ranked at #214 which I'm very happy with. Right now there are 285 submissions in the contest. Though I would love your votes at a minimum I would love for you to read my story.
If you could share it with your friends I would appreciate it also.
Presently I'm about a third of the way through the first pass on rewriting the story into one that's longer. I'm expecting to work on it a few more weeks.
I hope your day is going well.
Update: Made it #197 out of 285 today, 26 October 2012, Woot! Woot!
