Novel Contest from Smoke City Narrators

Today in St. Peters, MO: Scatter showers, high 51 degrees. I hope the weather clears tomorrow. Tomorrow is Cari's first high school homecoming parade and dance and Michael has a soccer game.

Here's a novel contest from an organization I hadn't heard of before--the Smoke City Narrators in Pell City, Alabama. An e-mail showed up in my mail box asking me to share this information with other writers. This is not an endorsement of any kind; I'm just passing along information to other writers.
