I'm a Contest Finalist!

Got this really cryptic email this evening. Just a photo and a one line message saying that I could add this to my website or blog! I'll take it!

Now, my first chapter of REDEMPTION FOR LIARS will be judged by an editor for Harlequin Intrigue. I am excited beyond words! Who cares if I win . . . wait . . . scratch that . . . winning would still be uber cool.

More importantly, I really can write better than a 5th grader. Or so I tell my students.

UPDATE: The scores were tallied and I came in 2nd place in my category! Not a win but it counts as legitimate fiction writing credit. Maybe an agent will look at my new and improved bio and realize that at least a few people out there think I have skills. Probably not, but it's worth a shot!

A belated congrats then Betsy.

I am visiting from Matthew's blog and your query letter that his group will be reviewing. I like the premise of your book (law enforcement is my interest area) and I am looking forward to their comments on it.
