This was the first contest in which I was a finalist with this story. I am so thrilled to have gotten an honorable mention in the Paranormal Category. This was one of the best run contests that I have ever entered. The judges comments were professional and insightful and the way the scores were delivered was extremely helpful to get an overall picture of where I placed. Thank you to the FF&P chapter for all your hard work (especially Sherry) and thank you to the judges who took their time to score and critique our manuscripts. I wish you all the best!
