The Good Read Novel Competition through A Woman's Write!

[I have to pause while I squeal some more and attempt to get my hands steady]

Cash prize and one of the judges works for Behler Publications--which gets a "Recommended" rating from Preditors and Editors (yeah!). I've initiated correspondence with her to--maybe, maybe--see if they'll publish me. No promises from them, certainly. Not at this stage.

Woo-Hoo!

I knew that once you joined the Dark Side, evil good things would happen.

Big congrats to you Lily! :hooray::hooray:


And, uh, can I borrow $20?

Fantastic! Hope your hands are not too unsteady to hold the glass of champagne that I KNOW must be bubbling its way towards you right now.

Hope all the other good things follow.

Big grins,

Where the Hell have I been all day? This is SMOKING news! Major congrats. Y'know, I thought I heard a high-pitched howl over here on the west coast but assumed it was my boss flipping out because I stayed home sick today. I'm very excited for you.

Timing is everything: I got this award Sunday night, and in this morning's email was a rejection from Samhian. (Which I had, like a noob, been pinning way too many hopes on.) But now the validation buoys me over the reject into exciting seas! (My, I'm metaphorical today.:tongue )

Thanks again, everyone!

That's fantastic! And goes to show that even fabulous, award-winning stuff can still get rejected, which is no indication of your ability. (Clearly their loss, btw.)

Congrats!
