Yahoo! I just received great news. A few months ago, I entered The Indiana Golden Opportunity writing contest put on by Indiana RWA chapter. I sent in the first 50 pages of my manuscript, ‘Dagger’s Destiny’. The entry was picked as a finalist and sent to a publisher from Penguin (paperback) and a publisher from Entangled (e-books). Today I got a call from Indiana RWA to inform me that I won 1st Place in their Historical Romance category and now my entry will be sent off to another judge so they can pick the best all round. Very exciting news! Hearing such great positive feedback has reinforced my desire to hurry up and get Dagger’s Destiny published!
I’m very excited. I entered IRWA IGO’s writing contest this year and my entry, the first 50 pages of Dagger’s Destiny, was nominated as a finalist in their Historical category. They’ve sent my entry to two judges, one from Penguin and the other from Entangled, for final ranking.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed, although, any placement is an honor.
