Thanks for Voting

For those few of you who voted, I appreciate it! 

Final results:  3 for Stacy McKitrick, 2 for Stacy Thurber and 2 for Either One.  Since one didn't appear to stand out more than the other, I guess I still have to think about it.  I will worry about that when the time comes. 

Right now it's more important to find an agent and write my second book.  And as you can see on the right, my word count is now official.  That's where it stands right now.  When I get to a certain chapter, the number will probably drop, since I have to remove a scene that is no longer needed (from an edit I made to Book 1).  It feels good to work on it, though.

And a bit of depressing news.  My short story did not win first place or honorable mention in the Dayton Daily News contest.  HEAVY SIGH.  So expect to see me post it on my blog soon for you to read.

There are lots of other contests out there. Why don't you give them a shot?

I may do that, but this contest was local and I thought my chances would have been better, since it wasn't highly advertised.

Short stories aren't really my thing, though. It's HARD for me to keeps a story short! When I like my characters, I just want to keep going and going and going...
