I recently learned about the Neoverse Short Story Writing Competition that Neoglyphic Entertainment is sponsoring. They’re offering cash prizes to the top 10 entries and publishing the top 20. After reading about it, I decided it was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
I’d like to send “Just a Drop,” but since that’s currently being considering for publication at Nebula Rift Magazine, I can’t send it off to a competition as well. Fortunately, I had an idea for another short story that was mostly developed and just needed to be polished off and written. I’ve spent the past week writing that story and have got a draft ready now. So I’m looking for a few beta readers who would like to take a look at it and share their thoughts.
It’s quite short, under 3,000 words, so it won’t take up much of your time. Briefly, it explores questions of fate and self-determination from the perspective of an old man who invented a device that can predict the consequences of one’s actions.
If you’re interested, fill out the form below and I’ll get a copy out to you as soon as I can.
