The First Slice of Potato

The Ambition of a Potato is rapidly approaching its release to a ravening public (or at least, I hope they’re ravening), and I am happy to say that you can now help yourself to a serving. The sample is freely available here, in the usual variety of formats. Everyone is welcome to come back for seconds on the 31st of October!

In less joyful news, The Wound of Words has been eliminated from SPFBO6, though it did make the final three in its group of 30. In eliminating it, the judges said “The Wound of Words is unique and full of whimsical charm. Makarios has a knack for elegant lines and creating memorable characters. That said, some readers may find the stakes too low and the overall tone too light. ”

Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that the answers to the quiz were not in Friday’s post. I decided that perhaps four days wasn’t terribly long for a competition to run, so the giveaway is open for entries for at least another week. Good luck!
