TNT Horror Contest Grand Prize Winner

After a very long, tense, nail-biting wait, I am supremely happy to announce that my story "What I Found On the Deep Web" has been voted the WINNER of the #TNT Horror Contest hosted on Wattpad!

If you missed the last few updates or need a refresher, this was a contest posted around Halloween, a collaboration between Wattpad & TNT to find fresh new voices for the upcoming Tales From the Crypt reboot.

Over 2,000 stories were originally submitted. From there, multiple judging rounds narrowed it down to 100, 35, 10, and then the last man standing - the grand prize winner.

I am beyond thrilled. I've intermittently been running around the house screaming, sending excited emails to people, and surreptitiously looking at the site and pinching myself to ensure it's all really happening.

So what does all of this mean?

It means that some time, my story will be adapted for television. It also means that I'll be receiving some prize money - and that money will give me the opportunity to focus on my writing full-time for a little while.

And for you, dear reader, it means something especially exciting: You'll be able to read my newest content 100% for FREE on Wattpad! So if you're not already following me, please take the time to do so (it's free! and there are millions of other things to read on there also!) so you can stay up-to-date with my newest releases. I fully intend to make Wattpad my "home base of operations" for the next little while, and I look forward to seeing y'all there!
