Michael Brookes (technohippy) Hi,

welcome to my consolidated thread for my blog 'The Cult of Me' (the name comes from my debut novel). Up until now I'd had a few threads focusing on the guest author interviews and guest posts that I post, so I decided it was better to put them all into one thread and here it is!

You can check out my blog here:

http://thecultofme.blogspot.co.uk/

It's a great place to discover new authors, see what I've been up to and I'm open to suggestions if you want to see something new.

Thanks!

Michael Brookes (technohippy)

It's than fun time of the month where I get to read the entrants for the latest short fiction contest and it's also the hard time of picking a winner. This month's image was the Poe inspired picture of a raven by a gravestone. I expected some spooky stories and I wasn't dissapointed!

I received thirty entries in total and a big thanks to everyone who entered, the quality of the stories where excellent and picking the three winners was no easy task. I have however whittled the entries down to the three winners and they are:

1.First prize of a £50 Amazon gift card goes to Emily Nemchick for her story 'Worms'.
2.Second prize of a £20 Amazon gift card goes to Jason Purdy for his story 'The Face of God' (Double congratulations for Jason as also won third prize in July's contest!).
3.Third prize of a £10 Amazon gift card goes to Ian Thompson for his story 'A letter from the dead'.

Well done to the winners, you can read their excellent stories in full here:

Michael Brookes (technohippy) Two weeks have passed for December's short fiction contest and we're off to a bit of a slow start. I guess I've thrown everyone with my sunny than usual picture:-) With the cold weather out there I thought you'd all want to spend some time in the sun, even if it's just for some inspiration.

But no matter, we still have two weeks to go for you to find your muse and enter the contest. The rules are simple, you simply write a story of no more than 500 words inspired by December's image and submit it through the competition page here:

http://thecultofme.blogspot.co.uk/201...

If your story is picked as the winner then you will win a £50 Amazon gift card, there's prizes for second and third prize stories as well.

For fans of short and flash fiction I've set up a Facebook group where you can discover fine examples of those forms, it's also a great place for writers to show of their work. Come and join the group here:
