Secret Speakers was just announced as a finalist in Textnovel's cell phone novel contest. I know that Secret Speakers is a long-form cell phone novel, and they're looking for short-form, so we'll see what happens in the next few days...Here is the announcement from the link at

Editorial Board Chooses Finalists for Writing Contest

The Editorial Board is pleased to announce the finalists for its annual writing contest. One of them will receive a $1,000 prize. We plan on announcing the winner in the next few days! In order to be considered, the finalists had to have at least 20 chapters up by December 31st, 2008. The finalists under consideration by the Editorial Board include the following stories:

Secret Speakers and the Search for Selador's Gate
13 to Life: A Werewolf's Tale
A Testament to Living
Of Storms, Seas and Pirates
Adventure to Raconia
Remote Control
Twilight Journey
Blog Love Omega Glee
The Lifting of the Veil

The contest rules for the 2008 contest are here: The Editorial Board is looking at literary quality and marketing appeal so that the finished work is publishable in novel form and is likely to sell well. We are also focused on a work that reflects the unique quality of TextNovel and the Internet if possible, since this website is about publishing works in serial form. Note that Editorial Board members were not allowed to vote for their own stories. They were asked to rank their stories in order of preference, using the foregoing criteria.

We plan on announcing the winner soon, so check back often! Team
