ABNA Quarter Finalist - That's Me!

Holy. Brown. Cows. I'm totally stunned, shocked and blown away.

I made the quarterfinals of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. My excerpt of CONTROL ISSUES can be read here. You can click on the button that says, "Download for Free" and read it. You can leave a review, too, which I would LOVE it if everyone would. (It helps me in the next round. kenyitkenyit)


Let me say it again: Holy. Brown. Cows.

Elana!

HOORAY! HAPPY DANCING for you all over the kitchen!

WOO HOO!

This doesn't surprise me at all; I love your writing! As soon as I have a spare minute, I'll go read and leave you a review.

Good for you. May all your writing dreams come true! : )

(I was thinking of you last night, as I caught up on a bunch of American Idol episodes I missed while editing my novel. Adam ROCKS! If I watch his performances of Black or White, or, Ring of Fire even one more time, I'm sure the television is going to spontaneously combust! : )
