Wild and Wicked in Prologueville »

Most of the time when I read a Prologue, I’m barely aware that what I am reading has been specially set aside. I tend to go straight from Prologue to Chapter 1 the same way I would go from Chapter 1 to Chapter 2. The prologue in Wild and Wicked in Scotland by Melody Thomas [...]

Life Lessons Learned at Eleven and Forty-Two »

Okay, I’m going to rant here. On Tuesday night my daughter competed in a school related event. She worked hard. She prepared, followed all the rules and did the very best she could.

Contests — Behind the Scenes »

So we’ve covered entering contests and judging contests. Today I’ve decided to blog about coordinating a contest.  Recently, I volunteered to help coordinate one of the categories for a contest.

Contest Pros and Cons »

Hello, my name is Sindee, and I am a contest junkie. Over the past year, I’ve entered a boatload of contests. I entered my first ever RWA sponsored contest roughly one year ago when I submitted the first five pages of what I thought was an awesome regency-set romantic suspense into the Grand Beginnings contest.
