Bringing Back Bobbie by Mary Lotz.
Congratulations to Mary, and to the other finalists. We want to thank all of you for your entries. We really enjoyed reading your stories. We urge you not to be discouraged. Continue to make your manuscript the best it can be. Take it to writers conferences, enter other contests. Don't give up. If you've read our blog for any length of time, you know our path to publication was unique to each of us, but perseverance was the common thread. Press on. We wish you all the best.
