    I loved this book especially since my story was number three page 21 check it out Some stories was a little confusing for me that I had to read it 2 3 times before I could understand anything but all in all various people from across the Caribbean get it created stories that came together nicely in one book for all to see

    So way back in 2009 on August 3rd to be exact somehow Lyndon Baptiste found my Caribbean writing blog He responded to a post about an international writing competition by sharing about his new short story contest That’s how the journey beganObviously I shared the contest opportunity with my local writers and blog audience but was intrigued enough to enter it myself – especially since it was one of the FEW competitions where ONLY Caribbean nationals were eligibleOn November 30th 2010 a one lined response made me very happyYour story has been selected See wwwpotbakecomI was ecstatic because I achieved some personal milestones 1 had my short story “Big Rock Soup” finally published 2 established my 1st writing credit in Trinidad 3 had my first inclusion in a purely short fiction anthology 4 was the only and first Barbadian to be a finalist in Potbake’s inaugural competitionMore than anything what was impressed me was Lyndon followed through on his project In the wild world of publishing this doesn’t always happen – especially with well meaning small independent publishers He was always open responsive and professional during the process So I had no problems with any delays to be expected that ensued Months later you can imagine my immense pride and pleasure ripping open the envelope to cradle my copy of “Across The Caribbean West Indian Short Stories”published on Potbakecom
