Taffy, I had no idea they did a chapter contest. How cool is that!

Julie Daines said...

Wait, oh my gosh, is that my name I see? ;) Next year, we're making room for you on that list!

This chapter contest is a great contest because everyone is a winner. Everyone who submits gets at least five judges critiques of their work. I think that is worth the entry fee!

Congrats again, Julie! Next year I'll be there with you :)
