Hello fellow readers and writers.  It’s always nice to have some legitimate news to announce, and today I have two juicy bits.

My new story, Inside the Walls of East Lombard Street,” is now available to read at Electric Spec.  Here’s what they had to say in the Letter from the Editors:  Anthony J. Rapino gives a shout out to Poe while making you think twice before entering into your next “serious” relationship with “Inside the Walls of East Lombard Street.”

Go forth and read.  It’s free after all.  And remember, I always welcome criticism, so feel free to give me a shout after reading to tell me what you think.

And now, the winner of my “Guess what this is” contest:

Amanda C. Davis!

She correctly guessed that the picture was my rotted Jack O’ Lantern from this previous Halloween.  Please help me in congratulating her on the win.

Keep checking back for new stories and contests throughout the summer.
