Can you believe it? I won something! I never win anything — like ever (sorry for the Taylor Swiftism).

But, seriously, I won a random drawing on The Firebirds website. The Firebirds (Cecily White and LorendaC) had interviewed their agent Pam van Hylckama Vlieg, and if blog readers commented on the interview, they were entered to win a critique (by Pam) of the first chapter of their MS!  Well, I’ll be darned if I didn’t win!  I danced around the house like an eleven-year-old girl who’d just been given One Direction tickets!

I’ve followed Pam for a good while on Twitter, and I’m so excited to have her read my story.  I’m also inexpressibly nervous.

May my luck continue!

    That is awesome, Laura! This could be the break you need. Maybe if she likes it enough she’ll even give you a break on a deal to have her critique the rest of the book.
