I SOOOOOO Needed This!

Happy dance with me! I got word through the night that my Scottish short contemporary (from a couple of years ago) Fractured Paradise made the cut for the first round of the Picture This Contest! It's a contest of a specific scene anywhere in the book that you think is most compelling. I've been toying with the idea of entering this particular scene in this contest for a couple of years and decided to do it this year! I haven't been really writing or focused on anything since December and this is just what I needed!

So now the finalists from this 1st round go through a 2nd round and then those that final in the 2nd round will go to a Harlequin editor.

So guess where my focus will be now that I'm starting to write a bit more?

That's excellent. And good luck with the GH on Wednesday (I was just at Elisabeth's blog).

If you final, be sure to let me know. I'm announcing the finalists as they come in on my blog that day (I always find it too exciting a day to get any writing done).

Thanks, Skye and Cindy!

And Cindy, I don't hold much hope for a GH final, but you'd be able to hear me all the way up in Canada if I did!
