First, Happy New Year to you and yours from me and mine!
I had a great end to 2010 slash beginning of 2011 when I received an email notification that I finaled in Southern Magic's Linda Howard Award of Excellence. Yep!!! My second official final and I couldn't be more buzzed. What's even more exciting is that the final judge already has one of my manuscripts on her desk from conference pitching in Sydney. All I want to do is start the year happy dancing but keeping everything crossed at the same time that this will be it for me! Yep, getting ahead of myself once again but who wouldn't? And can you picture that dance? Something like a crab shuffle =)
So are you on the contest band wagon, non-believer, published because of or totally against? Me, I'm still on the fence since the number of contest entries V finals V wins doesn't even begin to even out...
My friend had a great idea that I should start a seperate page to blow my own horn (that's not exactly how she put it and thanks to Cheryl for the suggestion) so that's what I'm going to do. Tomorrow. Tonight it's the last read of the finaling MS and that bloody synopsis. Wish me luck!
