I made the ABNA quarterfinalists!

Faith and begorrah, what a St. Patrick's Day! The luck of the Irish smiled on me this morning. I had this message in my email:

Thank you for participating in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. We received thousands of submissions and were impressed with the incredible talent and creativity demonstrated by participating authors this year. We are happy to inform you that you have been selected to move forward in the contest.
Now that you're a Quarterfinalist, Amazon customers can read, rate and review your excerpt while your manuscript is being reviewed by Publishers Weekly. Last year, tens of thousands of reviews were written by customers and fellow contestants giving authors valuable feedback on their writing. You can find your excerpt on Amazon.com via the following link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001UG3CGM, and access the main contest page where all entries are located at www.amazon.com/abna.

I would love for you to read my excerpt and leave a review!

Also in my email was an offer for a story contract from The Wild Rose Press! I'll post more on that later. Right now, I'm still trying to process the news!
And if you'll excuse me, I feel a jig coming on...

Cate! Congratulations! I wondered where the St. Patty's Day pot of gold had ended up. Now I know - it was in your email in box.

Joining in your jig,
