My Cover Flat and Contest Season

I got my first cover flat this weekend! I'm tempted to print it out and wrap it around Gina's book (they're the same publisher) just to see....

Looks like contest season again. I see a lot of contests are open to those of us in PAN limbo this fall.

First up...The Suzannah. Both published and unpublished can enter. I think I'll enter Breaking Daylight. Only 6 finalists are chosen over all, but you get 6 judges. Plus, money!

Next, Launching a Star. Unpublished and non-PAN-eligible authors can enter. I'm not sure about this one yet. Breaking Daylight, probably.

Then The Emily. I love The Emily. Can't enter Breaking Daylight or DLB or Surface, since all have finalled. I'd love to enter STTA, but I'm waiting to hear how it did in the two contest I entered it in this summer.

Then there is my possible first published contest, The Barclay Gold. Now, my maiden name is Barclay, so I'm drawn to this one. And the rule that will let me enter is the rule that prevents me from entering Where There's Smoke in the RITA. It has a copyright date of 2007. Now, it all depends if I get my author copies on time, because my book comes out September 12 and the deadline for this one is September 15. Talk about cutting it close!!! But hey, no printing ;)

We're off to Gruene today, lunch at the Grist Mill. MMMMMM.....
