W00t.  Got another call tonight, (and if I didn’t sound horribly excited, it’s because Lucy was wailing after me down the hallway as I tried to escape to a quiet place to hear.)  And good news all the way around. Finalists will be announced second week of October and the judge is Chris Keeslar, who I’ve been dying to query anyway.

And in fact, I’m number 2 out of 40 entries, with a nice average score of 197 out of 200 points. Thankfully, they’re giving us the opportunity to edit/modify our entries before they get sent to the judging editor – I’ve got a few spacing issues I need to correct, and I’d made a few small changes to that first chapter after I’d sent it into the contest. So w00t for me! Cross your fingers for me, eh?… Read more
