Xmas in July

Photo on 2013-07-18 at 07.41Yes, you read that right!   Xmas in July!

And I’m celebrating because Ruth Lauren Steven picked my entry!

Which means that my query and the first 500 words of Inside Hudson Pickle has been posted here, along with fifteen other winners (thirty, including those chosen by fellow blogger Michelle Krys), for agent perusal.

So please, cross your fingers for me… I would love, love, love to work with any one of these agents.  And it all starts by WOWing them with my entry – enough for them to request the full manuscript.
