Good News All Around

First and foremost--- CONGRATULATIONS to Michelle Willingham, who just sold to Mills & Boon Historical!!! I've been reading her blog for some time and following her progress. May it be the first of many, lady!

Now, on to me...

I finally called tech support and I'm able to get online from home again!!!

Got my first ever check for writing-- $15 for UCOD's 2nd place in Ignite the Flame. I'm so tickled I actually thought of framing the check instead of cashing it. My grandfather even offered to give me the money if I decide to frame it!

Got a FULL requested from the editor who placed UCOD 2nd in that contest.

Sent off 2 more contest entries today, with 2 more planned at the weekend and 2 more the week after that.

On the "downside" (if you can call it that) I now have to work even harder to finish FP by GH time AND do the revisions to the suspense (UCOD) that I vowed to do if I ever got a full request!

Guess I better stop typing and get to work!

Good for you, Christine. Awesome news on the full. It's so exciting when you final and place in a contest. I'm hoping the agent and/or editor who are ranking the finalists in the NJRW contest requests mine. Maybe your good vibes will rub off on me. Good luck with those revisions.

Thanks so much for the congrats! And best of luck to you on the full. :)

Michelle, I would've made it so people could link to your blog from my actual post, but I don't know how to do that!
