Oh. My. God.

OH. MY. GOD.

I won.

I just got notice from the SouthWest Writers 2005 contest I entered my book into, and I WON my category!!! (Science fiction/fantasy)

It reads, "your contest entry was selection from among hundreds of entries and ranked as either first, econd, or third place." The runners-up and winners will be announced on September 3 in Albuquerque, and I've been invited to the banquet where the presentation will be made. I'm all shaky.

Happy.

SQUEEE!!!!!

Re: Congrats!!!!!!!!
It's my vampire romance, the story of Sean Patrick O'Connor, cowboy vampire, and Della Kelley, Vampire Hunter. Long ways back I posted a little snippet here, but I did some editing and revising and finished it, and then finally got up the nerve to actually enter it in a contest... Wow, am I glad I did! :) I still need to finish a solid second draft, but heck fire, the first draft/outline seems to have done pretty well!

Yee-hah! And now we need to talk, er, practicalities, since I didn't know (probably because I'm so oblivious to fic that I never read the details of anyone's writing) that you were writing anything original. However, I have a giant project/challenge sitting in front of me and only this weekend to do it in, and then I'm off to Reno, but...soon. Take it as a promise or a threat, your choice. *g*

Hey, you already told me you'd "direct it to the correct party" when I got a final draft finished, so I planned on holding you to that. Now that I have the backing of an actual victory in a major writing contest, I'm going to get to work on that final draft!!! :)

OK, I have so turned into an amnesiac. *sigh* Otoh, yay me for having already had the practicalities conversation. *g*

I am so proud of you! (And I'm a little proud of me for telling you about the contest.) Woo hoo! I think you're on your way to a published novel, girlfriend!!!

Re: Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay !
I was thinking over my "thanks" list and you were at the top for making me enter. :) And Lee, of course, for Sean Patrick in the first place... :)
