Oh Wow! I've won the RWNZ Strictly Single - absolutely brilliant.
I received a phone call from Sandii (competition coordinater in L.A.) on Thursday and the even bigger news:
I GOT A FULL REQUEST from the Editor Judge (Berkley Publishing, N.Y.).
As I've spent the summer break polishing my manuscript - which lead to a total revision of the last chapters - I'm now frantically reviewing my changes before I send them off.
Exciting times :-)
