I've reviewed quite a few more books now on Readers' Favorite, with a wide range of quality, from those I loved to those I actually had to put down after three pages (including the disclaimer). I'm not posting all my reviews here, just the noteworthy ones.
Every quarter, my publishers (BookLocker) have a 24-hour short story contest. The idea is that you sign up in advance, and on the day of the contest, the organizers release the topic and a maximum word count.
