“10,000 Dollar Pyramid” by Robert Vaughan → Fictionaut Within 24 hours, it had been read over 50 times, commented on more than any other piece I’ve ever posted there (I’ve posted ten prior) and shot up the list of Fictionaut’s “recommended” stories to #1! The top position of every story submitted. And a completely new experience for me. I am still reeling from the excitement. Perhaps this is why I was meant to stay home from D.C.? Thanks to everyone for the support, insightful comments, motivating feedback. I am forever grateful. Here are the links to some pieces of mine published in December, 2010 and January 2011.
