Wow! Here's the best news I've had all month!
Super artist Jamie Noble hosts The Author of the Month competition on his blog The Noble Artist. Jamie selects one of his artworks each month as a visual prompt for a 500 word story. The December work is a chilling scene; at first you might think it's a pretty Yule-tide picture fit for a Christmas card but when you look more closely you see Zombies and a satanic Santa type driving his sleigh at a deadly pace through the darkest night.
At least I did and from it came this months winning story The Night Before, a tale of Zombies doing what they do best. Enjoy the read and when you're done check out the rest of Jamie's work - it's amazing!
