For us Forumites, that's like the cover of the Rolling Stone!

Not a dragon in sight - and still a great cover. (Wish I'd got a story inside! Maybe next time.)
4*R 2*HM - but I'm getting closer.
CWA-Debut Dagger shortlist. (Still trying to find my genre!)

Here is something wonderful I didn't know happens when you win. The contest creates a Facebook private group page for the volume you are in, and you make introductions and learn about all the illustrators and writers in the group before you ever get to the workshop! What a cool thing to help us build comaraderie! It's like our own Volume 35 mini forum!

It is! And it's got the feel of a story in that painting, something I always love in art. And now, it will have a story. Dean Wesley Smith has done a story to match the cover! He's an old friend of mine from my Eugene Oregon Wordos workshop days, and he bought my story for Star Trek! I consider him my mentor, so it's cool this is coming around full circle.

The contest's PR man has already called my local paper and has given them a really cool press release! This is like having your own publishing team working for you at one of the Big Five!

Keep going for it, all! It's worth it!

Cheers!

Joni called today, she's setting up our hotel reservations. One nice thing for the winners from Britain, they bring them in a day earlier than the rest of us so they can adjust to the time difference. This costs the contest more money because they pay for the extra days on the hotel room. It's just another way WotF looks out for the best interests of the winners! These people are incredibly thoughtful!

Here's another way to order, with multiple options. Of course, you can order through your local mom and pop bookstore. They can always use the love!
