Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Keep it up everyone!

It took me exactly 4 years after entering the contest, but I never missed sending an entry each quarter until I won.

Never give up! Never surrender!

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 33

For me, the timing of this announcement couldn't have been better. A few months ago, Baen notified me they were holding my novel for further consideration. I'm hoping the publicity from this win might increase the likelihood they decide to purchase it. After all, buying a novel is as much a commerci...
