The Judges Comments Are In...

I've been waiting patiently and they've finally arrived...and...WOW! Both judges for the Fire and Ice Contest are published Chick Lit authors and here's what they had to say about Spoiled Rotten:

Judge Ch9-11A gave me 97 out of 100 (outstanding, publishable as is). She said "This is hilarious. I thought the story moved--great pacing and repartee."

Judge Ch9-11B gave me a 93. She said "Andrea is the kind of heroine you love to hate. Snobby, shallow, worthless and yet you can't help rooting for her anyway! Thank you for not writing yet another bland "likable" flat heroine. Great voice! And Repo Man is to die for. Love his voice, personality, everything. Is he hot? Tell me he's hot!

Of course he's hot, Judge Ch9-11B. This is Chick Lit, isn't it?

Anyway, thanks to both my judges for pumping me up. I'm going to ride the inspiration generated from these great comments all the way to THE END!!!

Also, as an added bonus I got a check for winning third place. I didn't even know there was prize money involved! I guess you could say this is the first money I've received for my fiction writing. Hopefully the next check will have a few more

I am six shades of green (and I'm sure you could name all six) with envy, but I'm not a bit surprised!


Now watch the publishers line up. At least I'll be able to say, "I knew her before she was filthy rich and world famous."

Great news, and great quotes for the dust jacket!

Awesome! Congratulations - I'm sure it won't be long now...

Wonderful! Congratulations. I can see it now, in the near future I can say I knew you when you were not famous.

Thank you all I have to do is finish the damn thing!
