Books, Writing and Contests
I’m on a tight timeline these days. I got an entry loaded up in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest. I hope to make it beyond the pitch (which I did last year) to maybe one or two more levels. It’s a good experience anyway and I’ve made good friends while dealing with technology. And I’m entering the PNWA Literary Contest for 2012 as well with a different novel, Timber Rose, the prequel to Tree Soldier. I hope to have it published by summer.
I’m happy to say that Tree Soldier got a great review in the Jan 2012 PW Select. It was a thrill to have it selected. It’s really been an amazing journey this past year or so. At a talk last night author William Dietrich said that one of ten things a writer has to do or have is a crisis to really be a successful writer. Well, I’ve had my share. But things are starting to turn. I can feel it. I’m going to curl up with a book in bed and celebrate.
But first an ad from November 1858. What a selection of books.
