Deb - we exchanged a couple of emails about the possibility of receiving feedback on last year's page turner entry. Did I miss an email from you or is that still in the works?

Ok, don't get me wrong, I can't wait to open up the challenge on Thursday morning - If I'm not 1/2/3 or honorable mention, then I can't wait until later in the day to see if I made top 15 or landed in the top 40. I don't even scroll looking for my name, I control-f and key in my last name to see if ...

Cajunluvie, welcome! What a great selection! You've picked out a wonderful list of words, too. What's your usual genre, and why did you pick this book? Hope to see your contributions in future classes. Actually, the genre I seem to be wanting to write within is inspirational Christian fiction. My i...
