I won! I won! :D

Took me a lot of naptimes and evenings to accomplish, but I wrote 50,000 words in one month! And now I'm looking forward to getting on with Christmas cards, gifts, and fun! :)

It's Christian romantic suspense. Possibly a mix of Karen Kingsbury and Brandilyn Collins if I can pull it off. :)

Thanks! I may need to do more "research" by checking out the latest from both authors. ;)

Wow, that's terrific, Becca! WTG!! What will the next step be, when you finish the book?

First some major editing is needed to put it all in order and making sense - changed some things partway through the month. LOL Then I'll probably see if I can have some friends read it through for feedback. Would be helpful to have not at least one writer check it out but also have certain sections read by some "experts" in the occupations I've assigned my characters. Then I have to figure out how to approach the publishing companies. Luckily I have some online connections with authors, so they can point me in the right direction.
