Challenge 34 Results
« on: October 27, 2007, 04:47:44 AM »
The winner is, Gyppo’s “The Rainbow Girl”. Well done Gyppo!

Thanks to all the writers who entered this challenge and also to the non-combatants that took the time to read and vote.

Traditionally we don’t publish the names of the contestants (bar the winner of course), but I know that people are interested in who wrote which piece. So writers, if you would like to, why not post your name and story name on this thread.

Thanks again to all and good look with the next challenge.

Congratulations Gyppo!

I enjoyed your story, LilGuido. Actually, I thoroughly enjoyed the first four stories. ;D

This was my first short story that wasn't written for children, so it brought me out of my comfort zone and that's a good thing.

Thanks for the votes. Now, how much do I owe you guys? ;)

Thanks to my worthy opponents for making it an interesting match.  At one point I was level-pegging with the second place entry.

Thanks also to those who voted.

Now I'll have to come up with something for Challenge 35.  I won't keep you waiting too long.

And for those of you who may have wondered...  Yes, there were quite a few elements of truth in that tale ;-)  But the police rank and the succesful series of crime books are a complete fiction ;-(

Right, thinking cap on as well as the kettle...

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at
