I dont know whats happening at your house, but over here my kids are REALLY excited for Christmas! Only one more day until Santa and his reindeer land on our roof and deliver presents to all the *good* boys and girls. But before I send you off to enjoy your holidays, I wanted to let you know the results of Susanna Leonard Hills 3rd Annual Holiday Writing Contest. Those of you who LIKE my author Facebook page already know the results, but this is for the rest of you. Wait a second . . . Why dont you LIKE my author Facebook page? CLICK HERE! Thanks.
Okay, back to the subject at hand. Thank you to everyone who read my entry in the Holiday Writing Contest! Susanna and the other judges chose my story, The Gift Horse, to be one of 14 finalists out of 116 entries. I couldnt believe it! Then the voters (you!) voted The Gift Horse into third place. Thank you!! I am ecstatic to have won a professional picture book manuscript critique from editor Erin Molta. Ill write a future post to let you know how that goes.
Before I sign off, I want to extend a huge CONGRATULATIONS to the other winners. The first place prize went to Twas the Night Baafore Christmas by Dawn Young, and the second place prize went to, The Great Christmas Morning Mix-Up, by Kristen Foote! You can visit Susanna Leonard Hills blog for the complete list of winners.
Happy Holidays everyone!
