2022 Open Contract Challenge Winners Announced

​Apple Valley, CA, September 12, 2022 – Today, the officials of the Open Contract Challenge Contest (a division of The JayZoMon Dark Myth Company, LLC.) have decided, after a grueling five months, to announce the winners of their fourth annual publishing competition.

The Third Place winner, Rahda Deville, has won a fifty-dollar ($50) Visa gift card.
The Second Place winner, Robert P. Ottone, has won a one hundred dollar ($100) Visa gift card and a contract to publish his winning manuscript in ebook format.

The First Place, and Grand Prize Winner, Clif Flint, has won a two hundred dollar ($200) Visa gift card and a contract to publish his winning manuscript in paperback and ebook format. A round trip ticket and lodging to JayZoMon's Pop Culture Expo: 2023 in California, where he will be given twenty of his newly published book to sell as a guest author at the event.

"I'm incredibly excited to see Last Horror Hero take runner-up in the Open Contract Challenge," said second place winner Robert Ottone. "I didn't know what to expect going in, but this entire process has been really exciting."

"Promised Rewards started life as a short story that nobody but me would ever read. My wife liked it, and she and her writing group encouraged it to grow into a novel, “explained Clif Flint, the grand prize winner of the 2022 Open Contract Challenge." She encouraged me, argued with me, insisted on fixing my grammar, and made this a book worth reading. I'm thrilled that ten years of critiques, reworks, and support have led to Bard and Sigurd finally seeing print."

Both authors will begin working with Dark Myth Publications to have their winning manuscripts delivered to the public for the 2023 release. The Fifth Annual Open Contract Challenge begins March 9, 2023, at midnight PST. For more information, go to
