I hosted a flash fiction contest that began May 8 and ran through May 26. If you missed it, you can read about it here.
There were only three entries, so I had to adjust prizes accordingly to one lucky winner. As the prize was a Crux bookmark, signed by YA author, Julie Reece, I asked the lovely Ms. Reece to pick the winner.
May I have drum roll please?
So who is the lucky winner of the beautiful signed Crux bookmark?
Julie Catherine with her Song of Lyrenia!
You can read the winning entry below, and don’t forget, everyone, to head over to her blog and congratulate her!
Writing Prompt: After being sucked through a black hole a Siren who’s lost her voice decides to rid the world of bad pop music.
The winning entry:
Song of Lyrenia
The song thrummed insistently inside Lyrenia’s head. Her traitorous pulse increased, matching the electronic rhythm, drowning the sound of her own heartbeat.
She pounded the wall in mute frustration. Damn; it wasn’t even a good song; just computerized, manufactured, meaningless drivel. Enough!
Lyrenia raised her arms skyward, calling on the raw power of her aquatic ancestors, and summoned the incantation that would rid the world forever of the scourge of atrocious pop music.
The force of the blast jettisoned Lyrenia through the black hole, her siren’s sultry song echoing triumphantly into the cosmos as she dove into her beloved sea.
