One of the reasons I’m going back and looking up my past contest co-winners is I’ve been in touch with the gal who won this one, Lisa Desrochers. Lisa has won a slew of contests, but I first contacted her when I was coordinating the YA category for my chapter contest, Maryland Romance Writer’s Reveal Your Inner Vixen, to tell her she’d finalled. She placed second and we shared some contest stories. The best came a few days ago when she wrote to tell me she’d sold! Not just Personal Demons, but three books in an auction. How exciting is that?  What every writer dreams of getting for Christmas. Read about it on her blog: Go, Lisa!!!
