Scary animals and “N” stories voting

The voting for the Alphabet Challenge “N” Stories has been brisk. We currently have more total votes for this round than we’ve had for any previous round. I mean, nearly twice as some rounds.

It’s nice to imagine we’re building a following. You know, as in readers who will continue reading our stories for each subsequent round. Eh, one can dream.

You too can join the throng of “N” Stories voters. If you’ve not already done so, you can read the stories and cast a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge N-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link

So, scary animals . . .

The plan was to use photos of everyday animals and — utilizing Topaz Restyle and Impression and Studio — make them the stuff of nightmares . . .

The problem is that most animals drift more toward cute than scary, even when you set them ablaze . . .

I think I would still feed it peanuts and walnuts . . .

Well, I guess I should give up . . .

The new Gallery for the reminder photos is HERE<<<Link.

Say, how about reading a detective story? For example, THIS ONE.<<link

Now, if you like that story, I wrote a sequel. You can read about the process HERE<<link but the actual MMMM story is HERE<<link.
