  1. Aw, rats. Too late. Probably for the best, since I’m still at the first draft stage of this MS, but it was always worth a try. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Caryn, Bummer. Hopefully he’ll do it again some time. 🙂

  3. Whew! I got it in on time. Now I’m going to be on pins and needles to see if I make the finals. Then they’re going to post the finalists and people can vote for the winner. Which in a way I think defeats the whole purpose of doing it. I did it to get Nathan’s attention not his blog readers.

  4. Vivi, Congrats!!! As for how they’re doing it, yeah, that’s interesting. My guess is if he sees something that interests him he’ll talk to the writer. It would be silly to pass on something just because it wasn’t voted on enough times. And he doesn’t strike me as silly. 🙂

  5. Yeah, I don’t think Nathan would pass on something he liked. Mine rocks, if I do say so myself, so I’m hoping he sees something there that interests him. 🙂

  6. Vivi, I have no doubt! 🙂

  7. My computer crashed, I was offline a few days and missed that one. *hides in corner and cries*

  8. I’m sorry, Gabriele. (((Hugs))) You weren’t the only one who missed the opportunity. I’m sure he’ll eventually have a new contest. Chin up. 🙂
