The Fast and the excellent: This week’s SINCNE good news

For our good news highlight of the week, we are thrilled to report member Kat Fast won first place in the Bethlehem Writers Roundtable 2013 Short Story Contest.

Kat’s story, “Ave Maria,” will appear in the anthology “Once Around the Sun,” which will be released in the fall.

For more information on this contest and the very cool group that hosts it, check out the Bethlehem Writers Group. How cool are they? New England Sister Hank Phillippi Ryan was their celebrity judge this year.

It will be fun to talk with Kat about her experience when we see her at CrimeBake in November.

And speaking of CrimeBake (how’s that for a transition?), registration is almost full. If you’ve been meaning to sign up but haven’t yet, better do it quick. Go to

This year’s guest is thriller writer Meg Gardiner.
