So I found out I placed 4th in the New England RWA First Kiss Contest. Here is what the editor said...
The writer does a good job of creating a sexy chemistry between the hero and heroine. The premise is unique—always a good thing.
She also said to be careful that my heroine does not come off as shrill. None of the other judges or my critique partners have mentioned this but I will take a second look.
I have finally completed the scene after the first kiss - Hooray!!!
And finally broke through the 20,000 word mark. In the month of January I'm starting my own take on NANO with my friend Yolanda. A thousand words a day. Which will send me over 50,000 word mark - 5,000 words short of THE END.
