Oh, and I forgot to mention . . .

My first novel, Cloak of Deceit, took 3rd Place in the FTHRW Golden Gateway contest. You can see the full list of winners here.


I was amazed to final in my very first RWA contest entry, and I'll take third, with pleasure! =P

Brava! That is wonderful, exciting and to be expected. Someone knows good writing when they read it. :)

WOOT! You are made of win and full of awesome!

Now, what competition do you intend to crush next...?

Aww.... thanks a bunch girlz!

I was going to enter the Golden Heart, but I really didn't feel this manuscript was ready for it. And, if you enter that one, you enter it to ... well, final, hopefully. I got some really good feedback from the Golden Gateway and another contest I entered, and I can see this one needs some work.

Maybe next year, another ms perhaps . . .

No other contests on the radar at the moment. I'm focusing on finishing up my 2nd ms and getting a fair chunk of the re-writes done by the end of the year. *nervous laugh*
