A SUDDEN GIFT OF FATE has just made it through the first round — the story pitch — in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award. WOW! The novel joins 1,999 other works selected from a pool of 10,000 entries.
In the second round of judging, Amazon editors and Amazon Vine Reviewers will be reading an excerpt of the novel (roughly the first 5,000 words). They’ll narrow the field down to 500 quarterfinalists to be announced around March 23.
This moment is HUGE. Last year when I entered THE TERMINAL DINER in the contest, it failed at the pitch stage. That was so frustrating because no one read a word of my work. Not this year, buíochas le Dia!
So say a few prayers, light a candle or raise a glass of Finger Lakes wine and send good thoughts toward my novel.

“Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone…”
Taking a breather @ 11:11 from writing the climax to the sequel of “The Cyber Miracles.” Phew! Le cunamh Dé, it will be finished by nightfall. First I’ll pause to gives some thanks where it’s due, “the author of life,” then back to scribbling out the story on notepad. Feet don’t fail me now…
