Thonie, congratulations! Another award for your writing and to think I knew you before you had book signings. Hal

This is awesome news for which I send hugs of congratulations. Is MALICE partially set in East Texas? And how did you come across their award? I’d love to see networking about awards as well as promotion.
Again, BIG congrats! Arletta

Contests are how I got published-won first prize in Oak Tree Press’ CopTales contest. A colleague of mine, Madeline Gornell (she comments a lot on my posts), wins a lot of contests and I asked her about it. Her answer was, “Good writing and submit it to every applicable contest.” I’ve no association with East Texas. Go figure. Maybe I’m learning my craft!
