    I just submitted my entry. It's from the Iron Pen Anthology. I would urge everyone who can to submit something. This magazine has some heavy hitters in the fantasy industry.

    Greetings all. There is still time to submit a battle scene to this contest. In related news, I'm currently in the lead! If you can't submit something, please consider reading the submitted excerpts and vote. My story's link is here: Seven Undying Battle-Off Excerpt.

    Does it have to be "published"?

    It does. But they take self-pubbed works too. You have a month to get something published and posted.

    Thanks Phil,

    I'm currently in the lead and I hope the initial inertia keeps me there. The winning prize is pretty sweet. You get cover art service, editing, and the eyes of established authors on your writing. I'm pretty stoked about the latter.

    I've made it through the first round which will put my writing in front of professional authors for scrutiny. I'm excited. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

    By the way, I'm in your neck of the global woods. I'm in Hong Kong for a trade show.
