You know when you want something to happen and when it finally does, you don’t believe it? Well, that’s where I am now.
On April 15, I received word that my manuscript, Falling Again, is a Finalist in Passionate Ink’s Stroke of Midnight contest! Woo hoo!!
After I read my email, I stared at the screen for about ten seconds. (Thank goodness, I was sitting at the time. I would have probably fallen.) Then, my mouth dropped opened. However, I quickly covered it with my hand. I didn’t think it was wise to wake the entire neighborhood with my screaming. I stared at the computer again, for another thirty seconds, (or was it until my screensaver popped up?) to make sure the email was addressed to me.
Finally, I took a deep breath and politely screeched. Then, I called my critiquing partner and other good friend, we all screeched on a conference call.
I’m honored and floored to be a finalist. The winners will be announced at the RWA national conference in Washington, D.C. This news is an added bonus to what is sure to be an awesome event. I can’t wait!
