We are so proud of you Beth Christopher!! How amazing and a well deserved honor!!!
Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! (: Love the lightening bolt!
Fantabulous!!!! What does this entail? Details please. I’m googling it right now;)
You rock chica!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations, Beth. Look forward to learning more about this!!
Thanks so much, guys! You’re so kind!
Mara – it’s associated with the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in Colorado Springs, which attracts agents and editors from all over the place, and apparently I get my “pick” of whom to pitch. 😉 I also get the conference fee waived, which is around $400. Mainly, it’s plain old validation for my novel, and gives me a bit of credibility in trying to get my book published.
I agree with Andy…not surprised! Congratulations, I still can’t wait to read it! 🙂
YIPPPPEEEE and hugs from one of your biggest fans!! xoxo
Hey Miss Beth…..YAHOOOOOOO!!! This is just the begining girl…….I can just feel it! Way to go. Just remember us wee folk when you get famous…..and remember, I am HOSTING the first book signing party!! Can;t wait! Hugs Julie
Aww, Julie. Just make sure your house is wheel-chair and walker accessible, because we might all be ninety-seven by then! 😉
Huge Congratulations, Beth! Nice work!
That’s ‘cuz your a great writer. Congrats to you Beth!
WOW!!! This is amazing Beth! I remember your book in the super early stages. I loved it then and you’ve made tons of changes. I can only imagine how great it is now :). I’ll be your personal assistant when you make it big. And when a studio approaches you to make a movie out of your book, can I be in the movie?! Just even a small part? Seriously…..congrats Beth.
Hi Beth! Congratulations!!! It’s wonderful that you’re really making your dream come true.
What you thought as a “midlife crisis”at first was actually the begining of your vocation as a writer. Winning the contest are really telling that.
By the way, you’re busy dropping your jaw, picking up your teeth. You are fun!!!
Yeah!! Congratulations!! I just saw this – and so… I’m late to the party… but no less excited for you.
