Overwhelmed ... in a Good Way

This morning I received an email that made me do a double take. I seriously had to read it twice to make sure I hadn't misunderstood. Even now, my head is swimming from joyous shock.

I've been awarded first place in the Write On! Online query contest for May where I submitted my query for Pretty Girls Make Graves. I also won a gift certificate for iScript, but I don't even know what to do with that yet, lol. The funny thing is I entered this contest on a whim and then completely forgot about it. When you're used to rejection emails or stiff competition in online contests, you kind of don't put a lot of faith in just one contest. So I entered and then forgot. And wow, the results are overwhelming me.

I'm so grateful. May was an excellent month for me, because not only did I win this contest, but I also was named Honorable Mention in two Secret Agent contests on the blogosphere. It might be safe to say I'm on a roll!
