It took me awhile to jump through the hoops (and writer a better pitch), but I've got Red is For Ick signed up in the young adult category in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest (ABNA). Wish me luck! They're taking "only" the first five thousand manuscripts, so my odds are great.  :-)

Now I'm busy polishing up Coming Attractions , a manuscript I haven't touched since it was rejected by Avalon Books last summer. I don't know now why they requested a full in the first place -- the opening scene was too long, and while writing it I apparently became the master of run-on sentances. If I can get it cleaned up before the ABNA contest ends, I'll put it in there in the adult category.

This is what I've been up to. I live life in the fast typing lane.
