It Happened!

The day all aspiring writers wait for, pray for, offer their first-born child to the publishing gods for, happened. Friday I signed a contract with The Wild Rose Press for my Golden Heart manuscript, RAFE'S REDEMPTION!! It will be part of their Scarlet Rose line. I don't have a release date yet, but I will keep all of you updated.
The excitement surpasses the day I got the Golden Heart Contest call -- and I was trembling that day.
So tell me about a day you will always remember in your journey to publication! I'd love to hear from you:)

Contest Diva. Does this describe you?

I guess I've got contest-on-the-brain because I'm helping my chapter with *shamless plug* The Gateway to the Best contest, info @
Because of my involvement, I've been noticing all the contest opportunities as they appear on loops etc. It's made me wonder how many of you enter more than one contest a year. More than two? More than five? Ten? (Your secret is safe with me) LOL
Anyway, if you do enter contests on a regular basis, what interests you most in any given contest? Is it the feedback? Or do you enter because of a particular editor/agent judge?  And do you have certain contests that you enter every year?
I'd love to hear from you!
