Every story had to be about chocolate. It’s possible to write a story in just about any genre, on that subject, as we soon discovered. Love stories predominated, but we had crime, paranormal, thriller, horror, the lot. There was every kind of chocolate, too! I love chocolate and reading about it for three days was a special kind of torture.
I believe there were over 130 entries – it certainly took me a while to read my half of the list – so those on the shortlist did brilliantly.
To rise to the top of that list is an amazing achievement and my congratulations go to Lucy Mouland and Laura E James, winner and runner-up. Your stories are truly fabby. I hope you both found adequate ways of celebrating your success.

And watch our for Choc Lit ‘s new short story competition, to be announced soon. You can win chocolate! (Oh, and money.)
