July's Death Match - Read and Vote!

Welcome to the first official YA Flash Death Match.  Our two contestants, G.P. Ching and James C. Wallace II are going head-to-head today in our challenge.  They wrote 2 stories, each reflecting our theme, Urban Fantasy Coming-of-Age.

Click the links below to their stories.  Read.  Comment. Your comment counts as your vote, so only leave a comment on the story you are voting for.  Unfortunately we cannot allow any anonymous comments, being that we have prizes for voters, so we need to know who you are!  We have 3 Mistwood bookmark gift packs from Leah Cypess to give away to three randomly chosen voters. One vote per person, please!  But anyone and everyone can and should vote!  Tell your friends!

The Alley of Oz by James C. Wallace II
The Dwelling Race by G.P. Ching

You have until Friday, July 23 at midnight CST to vote for your favorite story.
