“Life Happens” Flash Fiction Contest Now Open!

While You Were Out Available NowThe “Life Happens” Flash Fiction Contest is now open!  Writers are given three random images and asked to write a 2500 character (about 500 words) or less story that uses all three images.

We’ll be giving away nearly $300 in prizes to the winners, including three Amazon Kindles (or a gift card if preferred) and two $25 Amazon.com gift cards!

We’re even giving away one Amazon Kindle to a Facebook fan who casts a vote for a contest entry.  Every vote is an entry!  Simply “like” us on Facebook, and then vote for a story to win, and you’re entered.

Half of our winning flash fiction stories will be chosen by public vote (that’s you!), and the other half will be chosen by a panel of CCC judges, with no regard to public vote count.

The contest runs through May 18, 2012.  As soon as your story is submitted, it will be available to the public for voting.  So don’t wait.  Get complete contest information, instructions and rules.

You can always find our contest home page here.

It’s free to enter a story.  Odds are, you’ll have fun.

This contest is brought to you by the release of While You Were Out: Short Stories of Resurrection, to be released on April 25, 2012.  The e-book hit stores first, and is currently available for only 99 cents through April 30, 2012.  On April 1, the price goes back up to $3.99.  Get the e-book on Amazon.com today.
