So happy right now! 33 books written, 10 short listed and 3 picked for the finials and my book Someone To Watch Over Me is one of those book. So what does this mean you ask? Well, it means that my story written for the Litnet Campus Romance Contest has been chosen and I get to fly out to Portland Oregon at the end of this month to attend the American Writer’s Conference and Book Fair.
It’s a real chance to connect with people who have achieved what I am hoping to achieve which is having a career in writing the stories I love to write. I will have a chance to talk with editors, agents, publishers, and print houses.
I will admit I’m a little nervous as I have never done something like this before. But I do so hope to make the most of this opportunity that has been given to me and I’m so grateful to have it. I sincerely hope that on the 30th when Litnet announces the winner during a special event that I get chosen, because I will have achieved another mile stone in my writing career. I could officially say I am an award winning author, and that would be amazing.
I already know what I would like to spend the $500.00 on that the winner receives, as I homeschool my boys, we could seriously use an upgrade to our swing set outside now that they are getting bigger. It be great if they had an awesome place to place during lunch break when the weather gets warmer.
Well, like all dreams… it pays to dream big!
Wish me Luck!
