Voted nice and early, so I can focus on my own WIP this month. I'm happy to have it all out of the way. It was an interesting month. More varied than the last, and some delightful stories.

Got my votes sorted. Even though I don't read Urban Fantasy, I think this month has given me a good sense of the genre.

Alright. I don't want to come across as pushy, but I'd like to re-state that if you have read my submission earlier in the month, a story about a cop chasing an artist, then please, read again, as my story has been replaced by something entirely different. Sorryyy~~

@Nora - I haven't read your updated story yet, but I did LOVE your cop artist story.

*plants the nefarious seed of doubt. ::)

Thank you for the compliment, glad you liked it and truly sorry I'm doubling your load for me this month. But ultimately I love this one more. So, no reegrats!  :D



I'm glad I caught the cop-artist-magic-paint story before it vanished into the that black hole where things deleted on the internet go... :)  I quite enjoyed it too!

Whoa whoa whoa!!! Are you guys saying you preferred the cop-artist story over the esper one so that it's loosing your vote?  :o

Tsssk.

I like your new story, Nora.

Don't worry, the guys are just being terrible teases and I'm playing along with them. I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I'm not fussed if they don't.  ;)
