Hint Fiction --> See My Name? Squee!

In celebration of the first HINT FICTION anthology, due out Novemeber 2010, Robert Swartwood held another hint contest. James Frey was the esteemed judge this year. With over 350 entries, the competition was tight, but I managed to snag an honorable mention for PINK SLIP.

For those of you who know me well, you understand I have this thing for Frey - the energy he brings to the page, the way he makes the substance-addled voice sing. I STUDY his stuff (and Brett Easton Ellis', another master of the screwed-up head) to get my characters' voices right when they go on their benders or sink into their otherwise impaired states. So... this means a lot to me.

Meanwhile, I'll try to find a home for PINK SLIP.

Happy Monday! Peace, Linda


  1. Congratulations! That's so cool.


  2. Congratulations Linda! There is nothing like having one of your favorite writes/characters receive recognition. I look forward to reading it when you find a home.

  3. Congrats on the HM. I hope you find a good home for it.

  4. Take that well-deserved boost and run with it!

  5. Congratulations on the honorable mention, Linda! It must have been a thrill to be recognized by an author you admire so much.

  6. Frey picked a very deserving honoree.
    But, I believe Pink Slip outshines the "winners".
    Congrats friend. I know this award is ginormous for you!!! Hurray!
