My phone woke me up — and this time, it was THE call … well, the call that I’m a Golden Heart finalist, at least.
“Beauty and the Ballplayer” finaled in the contemporary series category.
More later, since I’m sure this is the beginning of a long, wild ride!
My immediate dilemma: How can I get a flattering headshot for the Jumbotron? Well, I do work with a bunch of photographers. Maybe one of them will be up to the task.
It’s an amazing experience and I’m so glad you get to have it. What a wonderful way to wake up! Congratulations. I want to hear the deets about THE CALL.
Sadly, being asleep when the phone rang, I can’t provide many deets … I don’t even remember which board member called me. (Terrible, I know. But I was more focused on the message than the messenger.)
HOLY COW ARLENE I JUST SAW THE BEACON RESULTS!!!!!
CAN YOUR DAY GET ANY BETTER???
I just saw that news myself. And the agent requested a full. You can bet I’ll be contacting her … though I’m a little nervous about it, since I was placed in the wrong category (I’m series, she judged single title).
That’s what cover letters are for. 🙂 So excited for you. Go buy some lottery tickets because, man, today is YOUR DAY.
Hmm … maybe I should. I need to win the lottery to afford airfare/hotel/conference registration. 😉
*jumping up and down*
I just really want to read this manuscript more than ever now!
You are in for an amazing ride – yes, it’s just beginning. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the news… I was on a vicarious adrenaline rush after hearing this morning!
I know. I’m still bouncing in my seat … without the aid of caffeine. I might be back to normal energy level by Sunday.
