Hello there, welcome!
Previously using my true name (not born, but previously married!) Elizabeth Thompson, I wish to announce the birth of my writing pseudonym and entry into my first competitions:
My New Writing Pseudonym:
A new Facebook page will be started in this name.
Entry into my first M & B New Voices Competition:
The first chapter of my first novel, Express Desire, an historical set in 1860 in the Old West, is posted on Mills & Boone’s New Voices Competition. Thanks to Mills & Boone for offering the competition and the chance for me to put it out there! (Entry authored with my real name)
If you wish to take a look, make a comment, rate it, etc., it’s at http://www.romanceisnotdead.com/Entries/477-Express-Desire .
Come on by!
There has been some awesome feedback to my entry, like:
RWNZ Strictly Single Competition:
I have entered the first 7500 words plus synopsis of “Express Desire” into this competition.
Stella Cameron’s Scarlet Boa Competition:
I have entered “Mad Colts and Cowboys,” a 1000 word “as close to all dialogue as possible” short story.
Ruby Slipper Sisterhood Make it Golden Contest:
I entered one line from “Mad Colts and Cowboys“. Didn’t make the first cut, but am learning “heaps,” as we say down under here!
Thank you, RWNZ, Stella Cameron and Ruby Sisterhood for the opportunities! (as well as to all those I drove a bit mad with my questions as deadlines approached!)
