I'm a finalist!!! Holy Woowee!! (That's not really the words I'm saying but I can't just write beep, beep, beep-beep-beep!)
This has been a long time time coming. Most likely because in the first few years when I started to write, I had sent my manuscripts away for different contests and the results were demeaning, heart-breaking, a 3 glasses of wine to recuperate kind of outcome.
I decided then and there not to put myself through that kind of ridiculous pain again. So, I stayed away from contests. Until I met sweet Kiffer Brown at a convention and she talked me into putting my just-released book "Special Agent Francesca" in the Chanticleer Clue Awards.
After an evening enjoying her company and few glasses of liquid courage, I figured it out. Oh hell! Why not? By this time, I had a bit more faith in my craft, my books were selling well and the reviews were positive.
And look what has happened! I'm on a freakin' short-list!!
I'm a winner even if I'm not the over-all winner. I'm stoked out of my mind ;-))) Maybe, I'll be able to finally add the words - award-winning author to the rest of my credits.
How cool is that??
