Save the contemporary

Good news comes in threes! (Well, deaths of famous people come in threes, so it stands to reason – sort of – that good news does, too).

1. I entered my manuscript in RWA’s Golden Heart competition today! Woo hoo for finishing a manuscript!

2. According to Publisher’s Weekly, people want to read funny contemporaries, which is what I write. I first saw the link to this fantastic article posted by Jane at Dear Author, who loves contemporaries so much she’s set up Save the Contemporary. It’s a great place to get recommendations and . . .

3. Free books! They’re having a competition to win goodies from St. Martin’s Press, including Lisa Kleypas’ Smooth Talking Stranger. Oh, I do so hope I win. My local library has only a handful of contemporaries, and I’ve exhausted their supply.

Whoops. Jane at Dear Author just emailed me to say that was a really old contest. Oh well. I guess good things come in twos, and are closely followed by disappointment.
