I've been going back through my entries here on Dreamwidth (possibly getting ready to move this blog to another site; we'll see), and I just realized that though I must have posted it to Twitter, I never posted the link here to my second interview with Jon Gibbs, after winning his Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Short Story Title this year.

In this case, my winning title was "The Bear with the Clockwork Heart," though the story wound up actually published under the title "The Bear with the Quantum Heart".

The interview was originally posted August 1st and can be read here:

My flash fiction title "Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Meets the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" is the co-winner of this year's Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Short Story Title, hosted by [livejournal.com profile] jongibbs:


(Darn it, I knew I should have told my husband to go vote for me in the final round. Then it wouldn't have been a tie.) ;)

On a serious note, though, there is a certain satisfaction in knowing that I tied for first place without asking anybody outright to vote for me, even though it's possible I could have driven a few more voters to LJ to win outright. I'm just not crazy about doing the whole "hey guyz! go vote for me!!!" thing, even though I know it's not exactly frowned upon.

At any rate, both of us winners get a copy of Jon Gibbs' book Fur-Face (which I'd been wanting to read), a coffee mug that says "I are a writer" (sweet!), and either a guest blog post or an interview on his blog. Since I don't have any astounding ideas for blog posts at the moment, I'll be taking the interview option. Plus, interviews give me a satisfying illusion of importance. :)

(I really should make "Norma" into a series: "Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Finds the Lost City of Atlantis," "Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Meets Cthulhu"...)

Or not. :D
