I'm pleased and proud to announce that my short story, "Independent Contractor," has been shortlisted for the current Mash Stories competition.
You can find the story at http://mashstories.com/shortlist/independent-contractor/. Please click on over, give it a read, and if the spirit so moves you, vote for it in the Mash Short Story Competition. Being shortlisted means that my story is in the running to win, and while reader votes alone do not determine the winner, they are taken into consideration by the judges. (The link above goes to my story, "Independent Contractor," which I would rate at about a 'PG-13' advisory level. If you want to read some of the other shortlisted entries, please be advised that some are what I would definitely rank as being in the 'R' rating.)
