Perception Contest Winners

In Perception by Kim Harrington, Clare is gifted with the sixth sense–when she touches objects, she gets wild visions of the future. Usually Clare tries to keep a low profile due to her gift, but when a girl goes missing, Clare has no choice but to reveal herself and her powers.

We challenged you to write a story in which a character can see or hear things that no one else can. The ten most-hearted entries were sent to Kim Harrington, who selected the three winners.

Kim had some comments for the winners!
