There were simply too many amazing stories to make the job of choosing a winner easy, so we gave up. Just kidding.
Annalisa took her time, reading and re-reading the 3 entries sent to her and this is the result:
Annalisa told us, "wow, that was so hard. I'm glad I only had to look at the final three - I'd never be able to make a decision otherwise." :-)
THE WINNER OF THE
2015 WEP – HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE IS
Annalisa said, "Because I was right there in that room, hiding under the covers and telling myself monsters aren't real!"

2015 WEP – HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE
IS THE INDOMITABLE
Annalisa said, "I love the ingenuity of mixing music with the prose."
Samantha, your modern treatment for Hansel & Gretel was a feast for the eyes, ears, and imagination!

THE ENCOURAGEMENT AWARD FOR THE
2015 WEP – HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE
Annalisa said, "A chilling, horrific story, vividly written. So many questions..."
So true, the altruistic gift of mothers' milk from such horrific actions, unbelievable and so perfect for Halloween.
Please copy the badge onto your blog, brag about it, link it to your fabulous chilling flash fiction! It's hardly fair that we were chilled to the bone, yet some remain oblivious to this horrific story lurking on the web.
Denise and I sent Annalisa a list of 3 finalists, but before that, we went back and forth, and back and forth because the list was near impossible to cut down to 3. We love hosting the WEP and coming up with the challenges, but we HATE choosing the list of winners. It's just too damn hard!
The stories were so wonderful--how do you choose between Jeff's man-eating skunk monster, and Arpan's haunting stranger on the path home, or Bish's funny naked mermaid and Michelle's descent into madness? I tell you it's near impossible, so a huge thank you goes to Annalisa Crawford for making the process a little easier. Our previous post gives a sketch of each entry.
And our Random.org winner is:
A $5 Amazon Gift Card will arrive soon!
Thanks everyone, for an exciting October!
