I finaled in the Frasier

I have to admit it feels a little self-serving to be announcing my own good news. But since it happens so rarely, and I wanted to share, here goes.

The funny thing is, I almost didn't pick up the phone because I was at work and didn't recognize the number. I figured it would be a telemarketer. But it was Susie Warren telling me I had finaled in the Frasier. Wow. After having such a long, dry spell in my writing, this was very welcome news.

Congrats to everyone else who finaled. I'm in great company.

The winner will be announced at the ACFW conference in St. Louis in September. I was already registered to go, but this gives me something else to look forward to.

I'll post a blurb about the book tomorrow. Don't have enough brain cells left tonight.

Congratulations to our 2011 Frasier Finalists!
