Well, I suppose you can say I've really drug this one out but I truly couldn't help it. I am still torn between two stories, and I just can't choose between them. I have literally spent the entire day with this contest constantly pulling at the back of my mind.
I worked on the revisions and edits for two stories, Eternal Obsession, a Scarlet Rose short story and Bestial Cravings, a Black Rose short companion story to the Roma Wolf Tales series, that I have in the editing process with The Wild Rose Press, trimmed the hibiscus hedge at the back of my yard that has gotten really out of hand, and worked a multitude of other chores around the house and all the while in the back of my mind haunting me was, which story will it be?
I sat down about a half an hour ago and reread several of them and still the same two stories have me at a quandry. I decided to take a nice bath and further comtemplate the situation and it always comes back to the same thing. It seems I have a tie. Now what?
Well...the best solution is two winners, right? Ahh...but I have this other idea tickling the edges of my mind. How about we have a good old-fashioned vote? After all, we seem to be right in the crust of the season for that type of thing. I would like to post the two stories and have you, my readers, choose the winner. Now to do that I would have to have permission from all the authors who entered the contest in order to post the stories.
Would everyone who entered the Halloween Mini Tales contest consent to allowing me to post your stories? Now keep in mind that it will only be two of you, but I don't want to give away the who just yet, so I will need everyone's consent. What say you? Hopefully, you are all still tuned in to the blog, LOL. I'd appreciate if you would all drop in and comment as soon as possible.
Help me make this very difficult decision.
Let me know.
