This is a novella that I have written in September 2014. It’s mainly a mystery story, but it has some fantasy elements. I submitted it to the Writers of the Future contest at the end of June 2015, but got rejected. I asked David Wolverton for feedback and he was kindly enough to answer. Unfortunately, he didn’t have enough time.
I edited the story and cut some 2500 words from it. It was a bit tough, but I was surprised when I realized that the story was so much stronger for it.
I’m still confident that this is a great story, so I submitted it to Writers of the Future again. Fingers crossed. 🙂
