The barn door is open, and the horses have eaten the children.
For those of you not familiar with Saturday the 14th, that's a metaphor for I submitted the acquisitions form today.
It was remarkably simple. I checked and double-checked my spelling, spacing, word count, etc. No doubt I missed something anyway. I usually do.
I did make a few minor adjustments before I sent everything. I have no idea if I made it better or I'm just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. I guess we'll see.
As far as I can tell, the actual contest starts Nov 1. You may be sure I will be reading the message boards and keeping you informed.
Yesterday (I think) I posted the website address where you can go to register for free and be part of the voting process. I'll try to get that up as a link in this blog for any newbies who join me along the way. I've never been a part of the audience voting thing (I've watched exactly 60 seconds of American Idol - the time it took me to realize what was on, get up and change the channel).
I plan to have another book review for you next month. This book was published by Marcher Lord Press, and will give you an idea of what I'm up against and why I'm so nervous/excited/nervous.
I'm already way behind on my morning's scheduled events, so I'll sign off for now.
Thank you for your support and your prayers.
