Contest for "The Wild's Call"

My online serial short story, "The Wild's Call," is almost over. If you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for? Free words!

There's a contest associated with it that I probably should have mentioned here sooner. It's a contest of skill, not chance, so you have to read the story and...

Name Darien's boat.

There are no limit to the number of entries per person. E-mail your suggestions to jeri AT jerismithready DOT com or use the contact form. The deadline is 11:59 PM EST, Thursday, December 7 (that's tomorrow!). I'll pick my favorite and announce it on Friday, December 8, when the last chapter posts.

The prize is a black onyx bear pocket totem. It comes with a velvet carrying bag and a card explaining the meaning of the stone and the animal.

After the story is over, it'll be archived somewhere on my publisher's site. I'll update all the links so you can still read it if you haven't yet.

Have fun!



Winner announcement!

Fake Frenchie over at the Luna board won with "Foxy Lady." It made me laugh, and also showed the character's affection for his friend.

My second favorite was "Fantasy #48."

The permanent link to the complete archived story is here. The links on my Home page, Books page, etc., are also updated.
