Okay, I mentioned a few months ago that I entered a writing contest with a couple of my manuscripts. YEA!!! They BOTH finaled!!! I got an email tonight telling me that they were on their way to the editor judge for placement. :)
After not entering a contest like this for over 18 months, I have to admit, it felt good to send something new out & for both of those new stories to final in the first time out. After finaling in over 40 writing contests, perhaps it's silly to get so excited, but I am. Validation of sorts, I suppose.
Plus, I had a readers group to contact me tonight about coming to speak with them on Jane Millionaire during October. I love doing that!! Lots of fun.
Off to work on the new one. I've got great vibes going on it & can't wait for my agent to send it out. Soon. Very, very soon.
I had to put Jude's pic up tonight, because one of the stories that finaled was my Jude book. :) Man, I love that story!!! It is so much fun. I have all these cool promo ideas and...okay, I'm getting ahead of myself. Got to sell the book first.
