A New Batch of Little Gems

The results are in for the RWA Little Gems contest, the competition to earn a place in our annual short story anthology.

Once again the Little Gems was a hard fought contest with entries requiring a score of at least 92.7% to gain a place in the Anthology. This year we were able to take 15 stories from the 69 entries with a good mix of historical, contemporary and paranormal. Something for everyone. Congratulations to:

First: Jean Versace

Second: Emmeline Lock

Third: Patsy Poppenbeek

And our other successful contributors:

Cheryl Baker
Gabrielle Battistel
Harriet Jarvis
Delwyn Jenkins
Cathryn Jones
C.A. Main
Dorothy Martin
Jennifer Rae
Ute Rozenbilds
Shayne Sands
Jacquie Underdown
Vanda Vadas

Thanks, as always to Lis Hoorweg, our volunteer judges and everyone who makes our contests possible.

The Big Tip About Little Gems

Don’t YOU miss out!

Orders now open for the 2011 Little Gems Anthology – Garnet Edition.

Sixteen superb short stories nestled between an amazingly beautiful cover.

To order, visit the RWA website.

NB: ordering now will help us determine our print run and while we do print some spares, they are usually snapped up fast.

So take a tip from me – avoid disappointment by pre-ordering NOW!

Your copy/copies can be mailed out or collected at the RWA conference. NOTE: Books will not be available until RWA conference time (August)
