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
