Martin McCaw continues to score with his brief tales, again on an international scale.
His Burly's Ride, set partly at a rodeo in Walla Walla, won the Global Short Story Competition.
It's the second time one of his submissions to the Inscribemedia.co.uk writing contest has won and the prize is 100, or $170.58.
British novelist and short-story writer Fiona Cooper posted, "This is a well-constructed story and a very enjoyable read. The writer creates scene and character with ease -- and with echoes of John Steinbeck -- and includes humour and pathos, while remaining pacey and, while the ending is happy ever after, it feels real and with a nice quirky twist. Well done."
Next up is a novel for which Martin is making revisions and will be seeking an agent.
