The Dixie Kane Memorial Contest

Tooting My Own Horn!

I'm not big on self-promotion. I know it's necessary but I'm a shy woman and I grew up being seen and not heard. However, I did enter my very first contest, The Dixie Kane Memorial Contest, sponsored by SOLA, Southern Louisiana Chapter of Romance Writers. I submitted three works, two by Julia Barrett - persona A, and one by Chana Alexander, persona B.

Anytime Darlin', by Julia Barrett, my very first romance, took Third Place in the Romance-Suspense category.

Beauty and the Feast, by Chana Alexander, coming March 2010 with Resplendence Publishing, took Third Place in the Short Contemporary category.

I could not be more thrilled! To place in two categories is every bit as meaningful to me as winning grand prize!
