Re: Success!

Ok, I guess that is not all since some info was just made public, so I can crow! And Greenroom, she needs to crow big time, too. The results for the IGMS readers' poll are in--and my story "Sojourn for Ephah" (which was also a finalist in WotF) took second place! Second place to none othe...

I've also learned some interesting things about Marina. She is that person that gets random people to talk to her. She is more powerful than me. Also the photographers love her. So sitting next to her I think I'll be in more pictures than normal.
