Semi Finalist
Destiny
Award-winning "Destiny" is a novelette––shorter than a novella but longer than a short story––and a winner in the AWC's 2013 writing contest. The judges’ comments:
"At first this story reels you in to what appears to be a formula romance. Then it turns the genre on its head, throwing a perfectly aimed, delightful curveball at the surprising and satisfying end. The writer doesn't rush any part of the story, letting the reader see, hear, and feel the magical eeriness of one fateful night."

Self-reliant Reagan Nichols is used to challenges, but ever since twilight fell over Spirit Lake and that murky mist oozed inland, everything felt surreal. She thought she escaped to her isolated cabin to come to terms with her secret past, but when she finds a little girl wandering through the eerie fog, Reagan's attention shifts. Mesmerized by the child, she vows to save the little girl's father from the bowels of a ghostly vessel adrift on the lake. When she manages to find the cocky Jason Monaco aboard the nefarious ship, a supernatural force plots against them. Will they survive a confrontation with pure evil to meet their Destiny?
