To celebrate the February 2012 release of author Christopher Profeta’s new novel, “Life in Pieces,” he is sponsoring a contest for short stories dealing with some of the themes addressed in the new book. If you have an idea for a story dealing with unemployment or other economic hardships, it is time to get writing. If your story is already finished, now is your chance.
The deadline is February 3, 2012. The winner will receive an autographed copy of Life in Pieces and have his or her story published on Profeta’s blog.
