We're thrilled to announce the winners for our two August short story contests: 

Leah Sackett's "Sticker Shock" was our winner for the contest that required the story begin with "On the first day in August..." 

Leslie Muzingo's "The Fastest Rockslinger in the West" won the August Spaghetti-Western themed short story. Leslie also won the June Magical Realism-Romance contest with her enchanting story, "Emerald Eyes" as well as the April Romance contest with "The Woman Who Loved A Spy." We're thrilled Leslie continues to enter our contests! Thank you, Leslie!
