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. :-)
