OMINOUS CODE WINS 1ST PLACE IN JASMINE!!!

Finally! The book that nearly drove me mad with rewriting. And rewriting. And rewriting. The characters refused to obey the plot that I set out before them and therefore I tried to kill them off numerous times but they refused to die. They kept coming back to life and kept coming back to life. The hero is shaping up but the heroine needs a good old scorpion in her sleeping bag or something. But anyway...rewriting PAYS OFF!!!!!

So I'll try to sum up my contest finals and wins:

MANUSCRIPT CONTEST PLACEMENT

AMBIENT BETRAYAL 2004 Where the Magic Begins First!
OMINOUS CODE 2005 Jasmine First!
COVENANT SEAL 2005 Noble Theme First!
CODE YELLOW 2005 Heart of the Rockies Second
(Covenant SEAL) 2005 TARA Second
(Ambient Betrayal) 2005 Touched by Love Finalist

I know there's more but I can't find my sheet right now.

Thank you God, for the gift...and the gumption to write.

Thanks to contest judges and coordinators everywhere. My mss are better because of your service to the writing community.

Love, Squirrel
