To Enter or Not to Enter, That Is the Question

I entered Hot Shot in the Eppies and now I'm debating also entering Smoke. Today is the deadline (don't know why I thought it was Saturday.) Does it make a difference if a book finals in the Eppies, or does it just make a difference to ME?

Dukey seems to be feeling better. She ate a LOT yesterday. Dh and ds have to give her the pills this week - bwahahaha!

The EPPIEs make a difference. Industry professionals are very interested in the EPPIEs. When I wore my buttons proclaiming EPPIE Finalist and EPPIE Winner, I was stopped by a woman who wanted to know what I wrote to be recognized for the EPPIEs. I gave her the one line pitch I'd developed and she handed me her card. She's an editor and said, "Send me something."

Enter, MJ. You've got nothing to lose (except the entry fee) and everything to gain if you final.

Okay, you convinced me, Betty! I entered Smoke, too. Contest season is doing me in, though!!! Yow - the Ritas will be another $80, easy.

Good luck, Mary!

And so glad the kitty's doing better!

Good luck, Mary! It took me forever to read your short post. My eyes kept sneaking to the picture, blast it! ;o)

Thanks, Natalie and April!

Dukey's thrown up twice, so I'm a bit worried again.

April, that is a particularly delish picture, isn't it? I almost don't mind that he's only, what, 26?
