BLACKBIRDS a Finalist in The Write Stuff Contest

I just discovered Blackbirds is a finalist in the Young Adult category of The Write Stuff Contest, hosted by the Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writers of America. Thanks so much, first-round judges! I'm thrilled to bits.

I learned about the contest through a tweet posted by one of the children's lit groups I follow. Unfortunately, I can't remember which group it was, but I wish I could thank them.

The contest was open to authors around the world, which is how a Pacific Northwesterner like me got involved in a Connecticut event. :-)

Your book sounds really cool! I know you're keeping the plot under wraps, but the setting and genres sound awesome!

Thanks! I just checked out your books, as well, and I have a future reader for KILLING THE MESSENGER: my six-year-old son, who's growing up with a sister five years older than him and her constant gaggle of friends in our house. :-) I love the concept of "speaking Girl."

Thanks, Ara. It was encouraging news to receive as I continue the long wait to see if anything else will happen with this book.
