Passages finalled!

Woo-hoo! I’m doing the happy dance here.

Passages finalled in the unpublished division of The Daphne du Maurier Contest sponsored by RWA’s Mystery /Suspense chapter, Kiss of Death.

I’m thrilled. The Daphne was the first RWA contest I entered four years ago as a newbie romance writer. I entered both times in the Paranormal / Time Travel / Futuristic Mystery/Suspense category. Passages is a futuristic or science fiction romance mystery.

This was one of the limited word contests I posted about back in March – 5,000 words for the manuscript and 675 for the synopsis. Yes, I trimmed my 5 page synopsis to 2 pages for this contest, a worthy exercise by itself. I now am allowed to send up to 25 pages (mine was 18) to the final judges, who are … *drum roll* … Heather Osborn, editor with Tor Publishing and Paige Wheeler, agent with Folio Literary Management.

I’ll post the finalist list when available.
