A fetching shade of bruised.

Man, this is brutal. Laura, who's been keeping me company for the past couple of weeks, through the FanLit madness, said something to the effect that published authors don't have to go through this kind of up-and-down rollercoastering, and I think she's right. It's like the Romance Idol thing they've been doing at National for the past couple of years. Step right up and take your licks.

The winners are announced tomorrow at noon-ish EST. Then begins round 4. Three more weeks of this insanity.

In other news, I won second place in San Francisco's Heart to Heart contest with In The Blood, in the paranormal category. I cannot wait to see what the editor had to say about the book.

That's great!!! You're on a roll Sara! It's always nice to get a boost.
Have a great weekend.

Boy, do I relate to this. And I haven't made it to the top 10 yet; for those who have (lucky you!), I'm sure it just prolongs the agony. I haven't decided whether I'll keep trying--I guess I'll take a look at the next premise and decide from there.

Congrats on the second place win!

But you will try again, right? You're so close! So close!

PS my secret word is nkurdty. That's a fun word. I should come up with a definition for that...
