Preditors and Editors, a fantastic writers’ resource website, is conducting a readers’ poll, and one of my stories has been nominated. The story, “The Love Quest of Smidgen the Snack Cake,” appeared in 2009 in issue 108 of Space and Time Magazine. It’s the darkly funny tale of a futuristic snack cake with a mind of its own who sets out to win the heart (and stomach) of a desperate dieter.
Check out the poll right here. You just need your name and e-mail to vote. If you have friends with names and e-mail addresses, perhaps they might also be interested. And please remember “The Love Quest of Smidgen the Snack Cake.” As you review the ballot, ask yourself, “What would Smidgen do?” And try to convince yourself those Twinkies and Ho Hos you crave don’t have the same unnatural power over you that Smidgen does in his story. Remember, TheFictioneer.com is the official home of Smidgen! See you soon!
