Thanks, Shann, for remembering my concerns. :D

Deb, I was wondering how you managed to notify Cassie's family. Obviously, from your side note next to her name, she has passed away.

I'm really impresssed with the speedy production plans. Book Three -Wow!

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Can't even remember which entry of mine made it into this one. I've aged quite a bit since then, you know...LoL...Looking forward to reading all of the entries! :)

This is great news! My first EC will be in that book. :superhappy Despite having 29 writer challenge stories that made EC, I haven't seen any of them published yet. :( Maybe seeing my writing in print will motivate me to start writing again. Maybe...

I joined after you did this quarter, but every time I've heard about it, it sounded like a fun (but challenging) one to do. I wish I had been a part of it. Is there any chance you might do it again sometime?
(One thing about the Challenge is that there is plenty of room for creativity and variety.)

Sadly, yes. Cassie passed away about a month ago after years of bad health. She was a very precious sister in Christ.

I had heard that Cassie had died, but then her daughter contacted me to let me know as well (via Cassie's email address). I asked her daughter for a contact email address for her, as I knew Cassie would have winning entries in future books and wanted to be sure of getting family permission.

I'm so thankful for that contact. Unfortunately, some people are not so easy to find. I have a feeling one of the ladies in the second book may have passed away last year, but I don't have any way to confirm that just yet.

I sincerely hope so, Kristen. I still remember when you first arrived at FaithWriters and went zooming up the ranks. You are one of those writers who immediately made an impact and is not forgotten. :D

Have to admit, I'm not totally sure how many winning entries you have in this book, Lynda, BUT I am fairly certain that one of the winners was for the Romance Genre.

Absolutely, Yvonne. So many people have commented on how much fun that was (and how stretching). It did have weeks where people were cringing at being pushed so far out of their comfort zone, but they still rose to the challenge, week after week. They saw how valuable it was as an exercise to be pushed in that way, and some people really surprised themselves.

I just saw this post and am thrilled to see my name on the list! I had just started writing on FW about a month before the Genre topics started and I really enjoyed the challenge of thinking of something to write for each of them. Anyway, it's really exciting and just the kick in the pants I need to get me submitting again. Thanks Deb, for all your hard work!

Just wondering Deb if there's been a price assigned to the books, or is that to be determined?

Sorry if the question was answered elsewhere. :)

Hi Deb!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to see that the Genre-themed book is going to print. :) I noticed my name on the list and that the forms were shooting to go out by the end of January...If they have gone out I have not received them as of yet so figured I'd touch base about that.

Can't wait to to secure several copies for my family and friends! Thanks so much for pressing on through the difficult and challenging times and still bringing these stories and books "back to the future." :D

Obviously, I'm not Deb - but I'm pretty sure those forms haven't gone out yet, Bryan (good to see you again, by the way!!!). I've got two in this one too - they're what got me into Masters :)
Have a wonderful day!

Hey Joanne!

Thanks for the follow up and its nice to see you again :)

I double checked the contact info in my profile so it should be up to date...can't wait for this book. The genre-challenge was so much fun (and not just because that's the only time I placed...but that certainly didn't hurt either :wink: )

Thanks again.

Hi.

It's been a long time since I was on the forum but I saw this and was wondering if the forms have gone out for this book yet.

I hope I didn't miss it if it did. I check my email only about once every one or two weeks.

Deb, have you sent out the release forms for this? If so, I don't think I got one.
