The contest train continues

Two sets of exciting news over the last few days. First – my Four Seasons finalist entry Rural Rendezvous garnered an agent request. I’m polishing up that partial!

Second, When Jonny Came was a finalist in the Golden Acorn contest. I get to spiff up my entry before it gets sent to a Harlequin editor for further review. I’m not holding my breath on that one, but being a finalist is still an awesome feeling.

And – I sent my thanks off right away! I was fortunate to get decent scores from all three judges plus useful comments.

I’m not sure about another part of my resolution though, I really want to submit an entry for Heart of the West but it closes tomorrow. Groan. I might have to break that one unless I can squeak something in tonight.

The moral of my story—if it needs one—is that contests are still a viable and valuable way of getting your stuff in front of editors!

Have a great week everyone, and a safe and happy Fourth of July.

I’ll be biting my fingernails and waiting for my galley copy of Learning to Let Go. We’re getting down to the wire and I should have a release date within the next month.

Much excitement!

Kathy, would you like a copy of Phantom of the Night from Dianna Love? Please send your snail mail address to me so I can sent it to Dianna.
