I Finalled in the Golden Claddagh Writing Contest!

Woo hoo. Dancing …again.

I got sooo excited about finalling in the Daphne du Maurier contest that I decided to enter two more contests. Why 2? That’s what I can afford…. and they were open. So, off went my two chapters into the digital ether.

This weekend, I found out that I finalled in the Golden Claddagh writing contest run by the Celtic Hearts Romance Writers in the Gold category.  This category is, “…strictly limited to the top-scoring unpublished finalists in each category, and will establish a single overall unpublished Contest winner.” (Celtic Heart site).  My work will be critiqued by an editor and an agent!

If I win I get a gold claddagh pin and a cash prize, but even if I lose I get two critiques from professionals.

That’s a priceless gift.

About Jo-Ann Carson Where magic happens … Reports of Jo-Ann Carson’s death on a Gulf Island are greatly exaggerated or, at the very least, premature. The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

      Yes, I’m so excited I just might sing. But the neighbours might not like that:)

      I’m ecstatic, but I don’t believe I’m doing everything right. There’s so much to learn.
      Getting this encouragement, however, is wonderful because I feel like I’m on the right track.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It means a lot to me.
      Happy Writing
