I'm Back!

Crunch time is over for another year (can you hear that distant "Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa!" all the way to where you are?) and I'll be back to regular posts starting...uh..right now! Hello. :)

I've got lots of exciting news.

First and foremost--though it's old news by now--I'm very pleased and honored to report my novel, P2PC, has finalled in two contests.

They are:

SouthWest Writers Writing Contest
(SF/Fantasy/Horror category)


Utah RWA Heart of the West Contest
(Paranormal category)

I got the news on my two finals within 24 hours of each other and it was a huge thrill. Thanks to Heather at the Galaxy Express and my co-bloggers on Take it to the Stars for announcing the happy news in my absence. :)

There's also a FIRST SALE pending on a Paranormal novel written by one of my close peers! I'll fill you in when she gives me the green light. *jumps up and down and gives a big thumbs up*

I'm also getting close to finishing a debut SFR novel written by a fellow Skiffy Rommer I met at RWA! I can't wait to wrap it up so I can write my review.

Later this week I'll have an article up by an SFR writer I met at RWA, and some news connected to that, too.

That's all for now, except to say...It's good to be back!


  1. Welcome back, Laurie, we've missed you!

  2. Thanks Sharon. August is never my favorite time of year, but *big, happy sigh* it's finally over.

  3. Congratulations again on your achievement!
