Woohoo!

So I'm totally going to post an update on the Birthday Extravaganza, highlights from BEA, and the latest on being a Pretty Little Liars Secret Keeper... um later.

Right now I'm coming out of the revision cave to post that my entry from my WIP SLEEPER was selected as a finalist in Nathan Bransford's ROCK PAPER TIGER Chase/Action Writing Contest Extravaganza!!(gotta love anything with extravaganza in the name!)

See the official announcement with a link to my entry post on Nathan's blog.

I really thought I didn't have much chance because even though he also asked for suspense scenes, most of the entries were action or chase scenes.

I'm so excited that with over 500 entries I was picked as one of the top ten! Woohoo!

Be sure to check out the finalists and vote for your favorite!
