Hey I sent you an email to have you judge some flash fiction stories for the Rachael Harrie campaign, but I haven't heard back from you. Can you please check your email or your junk/spam filter for them? It's imperative that we move forward with the contest quickly.

Holy cow! I just got the comment you left for me last month on my blog during the first campaign. It was in my spam folder for some reason. Anyway, thanks so much for the shout out! I played this game with four others about the same time. I wish I had known about this one so I could have included it, too. So sorry!
