Soldier | Dave James Ashton | @davejamesashton
Cara Says: Loved this witty commentary on Heaven’s hierarchy and workings… especially the hover tanks.
Ruth Says: I enjoyed this riff on heavenly entities and read it through a handful of times for the joy of it.
Underboss | Siobhan Muir | @SiobhanMuir
Cara Says: Wowza. Good characterization and imagery make this piece. This super sexy snippet definitely got me in the mood for more. Story, that is.
Ruth Says: Smart sexy writing that made me forget about prompts and word counts!
Boss | Alicia VanNoy Call | @callthewriter
Cara Says: This story is 100% dialogue; not an easy feat to pull off, and definitely not the easiest way to build a fleshed out concept. As the reader in the know, I wanted to yell at the woman, “Don’t you see??” I loved the way this came together, with the idea that she will go on with her life and maybe never realize what happened that night.
Ruth Says: Love the way this story is told via dialogue only. It had my mind racing to fill in subtext and emotions and endless possibilities. I actually breathed a sigh of relief the end because I wasn’t sure how things were going to turn out!
