m-1931You had it coming. In fact, you had it coming for a long time. Too long.

An announcement, that is. An announcement of winners of our Flash Hybrid Noir Contest.

We admit it: We’ve been on the lam. We’ve been running from making decisions that we knew were going to change people’s lives, thrust them into the migraine-inducing spotlight of fame that comes with having your story published on the World Wide Web. We wanted to make sure we got it right.

We think we did. Our winners:

  • Winner: “How to Write Flash Fiction,” by Richie Narvaez
  • Runner-up: “The Cadaver,” by Carolyn Divish
  • Runner-up: “Cloud Services is No Place for a Lightweight,” by Jeremy Zucker
  • Runner-up: “Le Noir et le Rouge,” by James Sumner

In all seriousness, we had more than 60 entries, and they were spectacular. Our delay, in part, was because we had a hard time deciding. (Also because life got in the way.)

Thanks to David James Keaton for picking our winners. Thanks to all of you for your patience. And please stop by next week to read all of our prize winners.
