Back in the first week of September, I came to know the Show Me The Spark contest promoted by the Heartland Romance Authors.
The deadline to enter the contest was that day. I hurried up and sent my finished MS, Destiny Gift, to them.
I had no hopes of making the cut. I was entered because it was easy to send an email over …
But I did make the cut.
I’m one of the 5 finalists in the YA category.
I shouldn’t be too excited though. First, because I don’t think I’ll win. Second, because, as super Literary Agent Laura Bradford said on twitter a few days ago, contests don’t matter much “Unless it is a contest with a huge field like the Golden Heart” (full question and answer here). Note: Ms. Bradford is one of the judges of the Show Me The Spark contest.
Anyway, I am excited!
The winners will be announced on December 21st. *fingers crossed*
