Golden Heart Final– Nine days Away

There are nine days left until the announcement of the finalists in the Golden Heart unpublished writers contest sponsored by RWA (Romance Writers of America)

I have an entry this year in the paranormal division, Dragon’s Mark. My third foray into novel length writing.

The piece did fairly well this year coming in second place in the Beacon Unpublished sponsored by First Coast Romance Writers chapter of RWA.

I had the time between October when the Beacon Entries were due and December when GH had to be sent to do a lot of editing. I did feel a sense of relief when I reviewed the comments by the final judge for the Beacon and realized I had already addressed MOST of those issues in my revisions before the GH. She said my opening was “Engrossing”.

I’ll keep you posted. You might see an entry here on March 25, 2010 that just says SQUEEEEEE. I’m hoping for a Golden Heart Final but maybe I’ll only get a broken heart.

  1. That’s so cool that you addressed most of the issues from the judges already. Shows that you’re getting more instinctual as to what works.

    My heart rate increases every time I think of next Thursday. I thought of a really horrible practical joke – I have a friend in Texas. I should get him to call people’s cell phones. Hee. 🙂

    • I’m not sure that I’m getting more instinctual. I think it was more great critique partners.

      Oh girl, that would be a horrible horrible joke. Now I won’t believe the news till I see it posted. My name, Your name, Finalists in GH 2010

  2. Thanks the author for article. The main thing do not forget about users, and continue in the same spirit.

    • We may have lost a little bit in translation my Russian Friend. Your positive vibes are appreciated.
