My humble entry, "Ladies in Waiting," appears here: http://bit.ly/1hTSk8I. I would appreciate it if you would click the link and then click the vote button on the upper left side of the story.
Some interesting facts about the names in the tale: Adaryn means "bird," Aveline means "little bird" and Turlough means "one who aids or rescues." All of these meanings are significant.
Feel free to post comments here or beneath the story on the story page. I love hearing from readers and answering questions, if there are any.
Voting takes place until Halloween. Thanks in advance for your vote!
