Oh my Freakin God - I'm a Semi-Finalist

Oh my god, see what happens when you don't read your email for a few days? I didn't know until last night that I was one of the eight hundred something semi-finalists in Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award.

Yes, my YA novel, MUCH ADO ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL made the cut from the 5,000 entries that were submitted. Now I need people to go to Amazon, review my excerpt and write reviews so that I can make the finals.

You can find my entry on via the following link:

If you like my excerpt, feel free to encourage friends and family to review it and others' entries like Maureen McGowan's, which is at

The three customers who provide the most high quality reviews will be qualified to win one of three customer prizes, including an Amazon kindle reader, $2000 in Amazon gift card value, and an HP photo printer.

So quick, go review, while I sit here sipping a glass of champagne to celebrate!

Thanks everyone. I'm very excited. I entered just on a lark when I was in contest mode this past fall. Review and review often! (Just kidding!)
