I just checked back on the Brenda Blake’s blog site and saw my submission of the first 250 words of my novel, In the Shadow of the Dragon King, is the number one spot in the list of semi-finalist in the “Show Me The Voice” contest!!!!
This has me so stoked!
I’d like to take a moment and thank everyone, including my kids, my phenomenal beta readers, and my critique partners who put their eyes on this baby. Your comments and patience has really helped me find David’s voice and fine tune it. Thank you so, so much.
I know this isn’t a book deal (you’d think it was by the way I’m reacting :-)) , but the significance is just as important to me. This is truly a success point for me. Baby steps, right? Next step – to win the contest! How awesome would that be!!!!!
Even if I don’t, the experience is phenomenal and I’m just giddy all over. It’s a great day!
Hugs to the world!!! I’ve got to write, revise and write some more . . . after I get my coffee!
