There can’t be a better name for this post right now.
I meant to post yesterday, regaling all of you with tales for my birthday weekend and a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert. Or how I finished reading the Darkover novel after pushing myself to do so (it’s currently looking for a new home if anyone wants it?).
Or tell you about this new book that I finally got around to reading called One for the Money by Janet Evonovich.
But I was tired from my weekend, so I went to sleep instead.
I’m glad now I did, because I have SO much better news to share.
Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award put out the list of the Quarter-Finalists today. Both myself and my friend E.M. Verhalen made it through again. Neither she nor I are completely sure of how this happened, seeing as how both of us really threw stuff together at the last minute and decided to enter. But made it we did.
This was judged on the excerpt of your novel that you provided at entry, the first 3,000 – 5,000 words. If there is any inclination, I’ll happily post that excerpt here for anyone who wants to read it. I’ll also post the reviews I supposedly got during this section of the contest but have yet to see.
So…yeah. Give me until tomorrow to get the brain back in order and I’ll do a proper review of One For the Money aside from “it’s good, go read it!”
Off to go be boggled now…
