Happy, happy, happy!!!!!
I just found out "A Paranormal Menagerie" won second place in a writing contest. Here's the link:
Now, I'm just waiting for them to tell me that there has been a terrible mistake and that I didn't win at all. I would be really bummed then :( But right now, I'm very happy, happy, happy. I feel like I could jog around the whole block! (If only I was in better shape.)
And they will even post a review for my book somewhere - woohoo! Getting a review is like pulling teeth - I tell you.
Now second place is pretty awesome since this was a national contest (one website on each coast sponsored it) but I have to think: If I were Pearl Forrester, what would I do?
Well, first off, I would try to do in the first place winner, Vincent Giles author of "Demon of Dog Hollow," and therefore, win by default. But as I pointed out in previous blogs, I'm not that extroverted. Also, just to be on the safe side, if I were Pearl Forrester, I would do away with T. J. McKeough, author of "The Green Jewel," the third prize winner, keeping my place secure. But that would be if I were Pearl Forrester.
Only if I were Pearl Forrester;)
Anyway, congrats to Vincent Giles and TJ. McKeough, and to me (Yea!). This is completely AWESOME!
