Janet Reid has posted another contest:

The Amazing Something You'll Want to See Contest!
"No better way to show you Something Amazing than having a contest to celebrate the announcement!
Bonus points if you guess what the Something Amazing is!
Usual rules: Write a story using 100 words or fewer. Post in the comment column of this blog.  One entry per person. If you need a mulligan, delete and reenter.
Use these words in the story:
Contest opens at 10am Saturday 11/5 and closes 10am Sunday 11/6. All times are Eastern Shark time."

My entry is posted November 05, 2011 10:35 AM:

“I got’cher c-c-ARGO, ma’am,” said the driver and opened the TRUCK for the librarian.
The librarian’s smile slid off her face when she opened the carton.
“These aren’t childREN’S books. This is a shipment of ‘The Ionia Sanction.’ Where’s my order?”
“Dunno. The man t-t-old me to deliver this here b-b-ox.”
“What man?”
“Mr. C-c-orby.”
She brushed the FRINGE of hair from her eyes, inhaled deeply, and began to COUNT DOWN. “10, 9, 8…”
She removed one book, then another, closed the carton and told the driver, “Please return these and tell Mr. Corby mischievous deeds do not prosper.”

UPDATE: I didn't win, but I got an honorable mention!
Imaginative use of "rens":  Kitty 10:35am--"children's"
