I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who read and voted on my stories that were nominated for the awards This year. These were: Magic Ink V in both the Best Fantasy category and also in the Best Science Fiction category. It placed second in Fantasy and fifth in SF.
Also Ashley III was nominated in the Best Science Fiction category and came in fourth.
I need to also thank my Editors for their contributions to these stories, for they helped make them better with their corrections and advice. Thanks to each of you.
On a personal note, I have been having some health problems since the first of the year, and haven't done a lot of writing. I have been working on several new stories lately and hope to have the first of them ready to start posting shortly.
