Haunted Wins FF&P Contest's Romantic Elements Category
I'm pleased to announce that Haunted has won the Romantic Elements category in the RWA's Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Special Interest Chapter's On the Far Side contest. This is an annual contest for those who write fiction with an otherworldly twist. Or set in the future. Or with time travel. Or containing elves, warriors, etc. Or, in my case, ghosts.
Congratulations to all the contestants, and thank you to the first round and final judges. Also, a big thanks to the contest coordinators, Andrea Wilder, Amber Wentworth, and Victoria Stark who kept things running smoothly. Well, it went smoothly from my point of view : ) I was a judge (not in my category, of course) as well as a contestant, and these three ladies were available to answer all kinds of questions we came up with.
The On the Far Side contest is a great way to receive feedback from other writers who "get" your ideas, as well as having a chance for your work to be seen by agents and editors who handle such a varied genre/subgenre. The contest gets better and better every year. Way to go everyone!
