Reader's Digest 100-Word-Story winners announced

At last I can reveal the Indoor Writer's secret good news (remember she kept going on about it but couldn't say anything...). The May issue of Reader's Digest has just come out and her story is a Runner-Up in the 100-word-story competition. All 3 winners of the adult category are printed in the May issue,
and possibly on the website too (not up as yet). She was asked to provide some blurb about herself and the inspiration behind the story, but all that appears is her age (why do they do that?) and 'Tracy from West Sussex'. Again perhaps more will appear on the web.

Apparently they received thousands of entries, so she's pretty chuffed on making the final three.

The next step is to decide what books to buy with the £100 worth of book tokens. I have plenty of suggestions. What would you buy? Any recommendations?

P.S. Thanks to Bernadette who gave me the link to the winning stories on the web here. No more blurb other than her age again!

  1. Well done, Tracy. Lovely story.

    The results went up on the web on Saturday here http://www.readersdigest.co.uk/magazine/in-the-magazine/readers-digest-main/100-word-story-competition-2013.

    No more bio I'm afraid but they did put your surname in so I knew who it was!
