Please feel free to submit. The editors Myron March 12th, 2012 Hi My name is Myron, I’m a fiction writer that is currently writing a fantasy novel. I also started my own blog that focuses on sharing, improving, and creating fictional pieces. It is also a book club of sorts. I analyze books over the span of a month in order to help writers improve the critical reading skills. When will the new blog be open? Also I have a question about your contest. It says that the author’s name can’t be in the manuscript. Well what if the author’s first name is the name of the main character? Is it okay to have the first name in the piece? The name plays a significant role in the short story. Thank you for your time and have a nice day.
