HI. Emma Martin here. You don’t know me, because I haven’t been asked to host the blog yet like some of Lynn’s other characters. What’s up with that anyway, Lynn?
She’s already plastered it over Facebook and Twitter, so you probably know already, but at least I get to tell you more of the details.
Back on November 8th, 2009, Lynn decided to enter my story in a contest called Write Your Name Across The Sky, sponsored by The Book Boost. I thought it’d be cool because I like how she told my story.
So, on Sunday, Lynn was just sitting in her little office, working on her other book, Guardian. It was requested by an editor on Friday, so she was doing a read-through because she’s anal like that.
Anyway, an email from The Book Boost popped into her inbox. She snatched up the laptop and ran out to her hubby. I tagged along, so I saw the entire thing go down.
They sat on the couch while Lynn clicked the link to the results. I thought her chest would explode she sucked in such a deep breath. So did her hubby. He’s such a cutie (sorry, Lynn, had to say it–you know it’s true).
Lynn scrolled down and just under the First Prize badge, it said, “Violet Midnight, by Lynn Rush.” Then it had her picture and a short bio of her.
I flopped to my knees, dumbfounded at the fact that my story would be published. People might buy my story and learn about my crazy, demon-fighting life.
Both Lynn and her hubby didn’t believe it at first. I knew right away it was true, but they doubted. Especially Lynn. She had to email a couple people to have them read the link to see if that’s what it really and truly said.
She’d won first prize in the contest—a publishing contract and a year of promotion!
So, the year has truly started out with a bang for Lynn. New job, winning a contract, and getting a full request for Guardian from an editor.
Thanks for letting me stop by and share the news, Lynn. I’m so excited Violet Midnight won.
