INFORMATION
I came to FanStory seeking contests and possibility of cash prizes (that part hasn't happened yet.) Instead I found community, creativity, and inspiration. I am a multi-published author in fiction and non-fiction, but I threw myself at poetry about 2 1/2 years ago and fell in love with it.

So I was positively delighted when my poet status reached the top 100 last night. I'm ranked at #99. I also greatly appreciate the confidence shown in my short story and book writing. Thanks for all those here at FanStory who helped me find my place!

Darlene Franklin: I stumbled upon some exciting news last night. Forgive me if I boast!

I've had a boost in my book sales recently, so I was checking online to see if someone had written about me or promoted my books without my knowledge.

Well, no.

But I did discover that I hold the #2 author ranking in the category of anthologies and collections at Thrift Books. And they have one million books in inventory!
Unfortunately, I don't make a penny out of their sales, but I'm blown over by that degree of popularity.

Darlene Franklin: Thanks to everyone who voted for my two stories, The Sock Universe and September 9, 2069. I'm having fun spreading my story-telling wings to writie more than romance.
