I took the advice of Henry Heitmann, who last year was a winner in the DreamquestOne writing contest, and I entered one of my short stories in this years contest. This year I won third place and was very pleased to do that. Dreamquest is a National/ International web site and draws 1000s of entries each year from around the world. Winning is a plus and I encourage you to try it. Ken Feeley.. (view the winners at http://www.dreamquestone.com )
Carl Megill’s second book has been published called “KWIZZLES.” It’s a word game I created that uses trivia, jumbles and quizzes all in one. There are Kwizzles covering many topics (music, tv, movies, sports, personalities and more). It’s perfect for that puzzle lover, or trivia expert in your family. You’ll find it on amazon and at my website www.carlmegill.com. I hope you’ll check out this new and challenging game.
