Suspense Techniques Challenge: It's Winner Time!

For those of you who have been regulars around Enter the Door Within, you know that back in January, I wrote a little clinic series on how to add Suspense to your writing. I explained 7 Suspense Techniques that many authors use to keep their readers flipping the pages. The series culminated in a contest.

All writers had to do wastry the suspense technique and post their best {short} scene. Winners were due toreceive either a signed copy of The Door Within, Lost Chapters Edition or a signed copy of Isle of Swords.



I've let the contest sit for a good long time, but now, I've {finally} received my author shipment of Door Within, Lost Chapter Editions. So, beginning June 1st, I will start announcing the winners of each Suspense Technique Contest. I will reveal one winner per week. Which means...

There's still time to Enter!

If you are new here and didn't know about the contest OR if you've entered some but not all OR even if you've entered all the contest but have not submitted TWO separate entries, you can still enter. Just visit the links below for details and then POST your suspenseful scenes.

Suspense Technique #7: The What if Twist

Suspense Technique #6: Mood and Atmosphere

Suspense Technique #5: The Trail of Breadcrumbs

Suspense Technique #4: Frustration

Suspense Technique #3: Peril

Suspense Technique #2: Intense Emotion

Suspense Technique #1: Mystery


I won't say "Good Luck" because I don't believe in it, but
I wish you well in the contest. Now, don't just sit there...
Get Writing!

Wayne,
I'm not sure if I have posted too late, but I entered in Suspense Technique #7 and Suspense Technique #6. Thank you, thank you very much (my Elvis impersonation).

Am I too late to enter the elements you haven't posted winners for? (What an odd way to word a question!)
