Hello Dear Readers,
A new month begins and it is the moment to take a look behind at the month that has already past and a look ahead, the same time, and see what is going to come.
We had a good month. Let me correct that: we had a GREAT month. If you wonder why, here are the facts:
1. For the entire month of May, the review had 43,144 readers, and only during May 15 and May 31, 28,843 people visited the site and read the poems and stories featured in the May issue.
2. For the first time since launching, one author had an amazing number of readers: up to yesterday inclusively, 5,723 people read this author's work. We will not reveal who this one is, as we don't want to spoil the surprise when announcing the May issue winners for poetry, short-stories and essays.
3. We also released a series of Kindle books and paperback books:
Yesterday 2 releases:
SCARLET LEAF REVIEW ESSAYS AWARDS
SCARLET LEAF REVIEW SHORT-STORY AWARDS
New releases during the month of May:

5. We had the results for the short-story competition with three winners. You can read the stories if you click on the AWARD header from the menu. Don't forget, soon, we will have a poetry competition!
A lot of good things, don't you think?
