Dr. Melissa Ridley Elmes named the Grand Prize of the Open Contract Challenge.

Apple Valley, CA, September 24, 2019 – Dark Myth Publications (a division of The JayZoMon Dark Myth Company) announced that after six grueling months of stages and obstacles, today, within the pages of their The World of Myth Magazine's anniversary issue that Dr. Melissa Ridley Elmes was declared the Grand Prize Winner of the Open Contract Challenge.

Dr. Elmes' poetry book, "Arthurian Things: A Collection of Poems" will be published digitally and in paperback in February 2020, just in time for JayZoMon's Pop Culture Expo that same month.

Other than an open contract for her poetry book to be published in paperback and ebook form, Dr. Elmes wins a $200 Visa Gift Card and a full-expense paid trip to JayZoMon's Pop Culture Expo, where she will be given copies of her book to sell at the event for all the profit.

Our Second Place Winner was named Jeff R. Young, who received a $100 Visa Gift Card and an ebook contract for his "Diary of a Madman" story.

The Third Place Winner was Walter G. Esselman, who won a $50 Visa Gift Card.

Currently, management is reviewing the numbers and is highly expected for the Open Contract Challenge to return in March 2020.
