Step # 3 in my last post advised: Dream a dream and then live it. Included in that dream was entering contests so I'm sharing a local event in my territory:
Alternate Times sponsored by Tampa Bay Times. Tampa Bay highschoolers are asked to write a short story reimagining one of five events in history. The contest deadline is Oct. 6, 2014. Winner is awarded $100, the winning story is published online and the author is invited to read their work at the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading. Judges include science fiction authors Alan Smale, Harry Turtledove and Rick Wilber.
I write middle grade and young adult books with a magical twist, and I'm represented by the fabulous Leslie Zampetti at Open Book Literary.
