Guess what, my story Thicker Than Water (written with HTTS (see below) and the first novel I wrote in English without writing a German first draft) is a finalist in the Colorado Gold Writing Contest 2010 in Speculative Fiction from the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.
I'm sure that I won't win because Kristin Nelson already rejected the manuscript a while ago, but the comments I received were very valuable and spot on. Now, I will revise the whole thing again, and maybe, I'll be able to find an agent then. I'm ever so excited. I would love to know though, how many entries there were per category.
Holly (and her courses How to Think Sideways and How to Revise Your Novel) rock!!! I can't say that often enough.

P.S.: I'll rant about WriteOnCon next week. Promise.
