She is also thrilled to report ---
Six full manuscripts requested
One manuscript accepted for publication with contract signed, sealed and delivered
The manuscript that was accepted was "The Sholes Key" by Clarissa Draper, one of my favorite bloggers, and so of course since it happened through my contest, I feel like such a proud mama!!
Congratulations to Clarissa!!
And who knows, with six fulls requested (in addition to the 3 top winners), there may be more good news to come!
