A minor ‘Squeeee!’

I'm delighted to report that my 100-word drabble, Wild West Justice, currently holds the number one spot in the ‘Top 10 stories of the last 30 days’ rankings over at Every Day Fiction.   

Thank you so much to everyone who commented and/or gave it a star rating over there.  

I know it’s not quite on a par with having a book on the NY Times best seller list, but I'm still chuffed.

Thank you :)

I know it's no big deal in the great scheme of things, but I plan to enjoy any success, however minimal, to the full, just in case it turns out to be my last ;)

Ooh, thank you :)

By the way, I've been meaning to ask. How come you list Shaun of the Dead as an interest, but not Hot Fuzz?

Re: your right to squeee
Thanks, Andrew :)

I've often heard the words 'rank' and 'Number two' in descriptions of my work. This makes a nice change ;)
