You may remember a few days ago I blogged about suddenly having a deadline to write a 1,500 word story for a writer duel over at House Of Horror.

The theme was “something written on a tombstone”. I put together my story, my opponent has written his and now they’re both up for the voting public to read and decide which is best. It looks like you need to leave an email address and a comment as your vote, presumably something along the lines of “I like Pushed Too Far by Alan Baxter best!” Assuming, that is, that you do prefer my story.

Follow this link to the House Of Horror website and scroll down to Let The Duel Begin. Click that and there you’ll find a text box with both stories and under that the two fields for you to place your vote. I’d love to get your votes, but if you can’t be bothered, that’s fine – go and read the story anyway. You can always comment here and let me know what you thought of it. Or just have a read and don’t worry about commenting anywhere. Or don’t even bother to read it. See how many options are open? Incidentally, the site in question has embedded sound effects which can be a bit annoying, so hit the mute button before you click on the link to avoid those.

If you do read my story, I hope you like it.
