Great short story contest from Dave Farland

Dave Farland's epublishing house The East India Press is sponsoring a short story contest based on his recent Nightingale novel. There is no cost to enter. The deadline is March 1, so get writing! From the contest information page:

Win $1,000 cash prize
PLUS your story will be published as an opener to the Nightingale enhanced novel, as well as a stand-alone e-book
PLUS East India Press will consider your novel submission for publication
FREE to enter (no fees of any kind)
Open to all – any nationality, any age – with teens especially encouraged to enter
Finally, your chance to test your writing talent and win a shot at fame!

So how about it? GOt your 2500 word draft ready? For the curious playing from home, the cash prize amounts to $2.50/word of your story, which completely blows away the 5c/word rate listed as "pro rates" everywhere in the industry, so get writing! Nothing to lose, and I know from reputation and experience that Dave Farland runs a fantastic program. Good luck!
