The Dickens You Say

The Practical Press Awards have been announced.

The Charles Dickens Award
Best Serialized Story – Complete or nearly complete
Small Town Boys – Mustang Bobby

Thank you to everyone who read and voted for it. I am truly honored by this recognition, especially since it comes from fellow writers who have proven their talent and craft in their own admirable writings and readers who have taken the story to heart.

This means a great deal to me. Thank you.

I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that The Practical Press is the brainchild of Kenneth Quinnell of T. Rex’s Guide to Life. He has been our leader in this adventure, and to him goes a great deal of credit for starting it and instituting the awards. It is safe to say that if it wasn’t for him, Small Town Boys would still be a 41-page unfinished story moldering away on my C-drive. Thank you, Kenneth.
