Yesterday, whilst lying around and bemoaning my aching hips/feet/ankles, the phone rang. Mike answered it. It was clearly for me by the way he said yes, but may I ask who's calling. And I thought, oh heck, I don't want to talk to anyone right now! It obviously wasn't anyone I knew. Can't it wait?
But, I took the phone, said hello, and heard this friendly voice say she was Angi Platt with the North Texas RWA. My WIP, Seducing Evangeline, finalled in the Steamy Hot category of the Great Expectations contest! Needless to say, I was very happy. The aching body parts were momentarily forgotten as Angi and I talked. 🙂
This is the second contest I've entered with this WIP. I revised based on comments from the first, so I'm very pleased that I've achieved finalist status this time around. As I told Mike, this is a nice thing, but I refuse to pin hopes and, worse, ego on it. If I win, fine. If I don't, fine. It's a great confidence booster, but it doesn't mean the book is practically sold.
But, dang, I'm happy. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Happy, Happy. Joy! Joy!
Say it three times fast.
That’s a great attitude, Lynne. Good luck!! Hope you get it. 🙂
Thank you, Cynthia and Millenia! It’s always nice to get a boost. Helps for the rejection days. 🙂
Congrats, Lynn! Fingers crossed for you.
Hey, I sold directly from the Great Expectations contest!! Good Karma coming your way!!
Oooh, thanks Alison! That is good Karma! I’m not getting my hopes up, but it’s such a nice accomplishment for me. I’m just enjoying myself, and feeling like the book ain’t half bad. 🙂
Great news, Lynn! I’ve finaled in the GE before – not this year, alas, but didn’t expect to. Just got the reactions I needed for a WIP I couldn’t decide to pursue or not. Seems I should pursue. 😉
It was great seeing your name on the list.
Thank you, Carol! I’m glad you got what you were looking for from the contest. I think it’s a good one, and I think Angi and crew handle it really well. They are so professional and friendly. 🙂
best regards, nice info
