    Well this is exciting!
    Flash fiction is my favorite style to write, and Review Fuse has always had such fun contests.

    I tried submitting my piece this aft, but there was no section to upload for the category selections (like in the past).
    Has a folder not been created for this contest yet?
    Or am I just not seeing it?

    Thanks so much!

    The category is now there. Thank you for alerting us to it not being there. I am glad you enjoy the contests, we will try to keep them going.

    Hey there! Since I live in another country (AKA Singapore), I was wondering if I was eligible for the prize if I enter the competition. Sorry if this is written somewhere, but I missed it!

    I have posted a story for this and completed my required reviews but my story is still not listed with the other entries. THere are only 10 there and they never seem to change. Plus one author has two posted for the contest but the rules state only one entry per person, so I am a bit confused.

    I’m very interested to see who the winner is for this. (Since I didn’t get THE email, myself. :o)) When will results be available?
