#GoreWars Round 2!

Thanks to all the wonderful sickos who voted in the first round of GoreWars over at DarkFuse MagazinePucker Up was one of the winning stories and I am now in round two with a fresh story called Sinner. I'll be squaring off against dark poet Timothy P. Flynn, who was one of the top vote-getters in round one, so I'm expecting some stiff competition here (Update: After being tied half-way through day one, Timothy squeaked out a bit of a lead. Things are heating up! The score is currently 355-308, and this is looking like the match to watch.)

The GoreWars rules are simple - participants have 50 words to gross out, shock, and/or disturb readers. So dear readers, if you've got a strong stomach, head on over to the GoreWars page. Because of graphic content, the stories are accessible only to subscribers. You can either purchase a paid account, or you can sign up for a 72-hour trial subscription and cast your vote.

DarkFuse has announced that 3 voters will be picked at random from the ballots cast in round 2 and will receive gift boxes full of limited edition books (a value of $150 or more in each box)! I have several DarkFuse limiteds in my own library, and these books are quite lovely. All I can say is, if you're one of the three winning voters, you're in for a treat. I'll also be kinda jealous... 

Now, I present to you my GoreWars Round Two entry, Sinner. Go check out the entries and be sure to vote for your favorites!
