….A reminder email I received from the wonderful folks at Georgia Romance Writers. Just what I needed to get my rear in gear…
The Maggie deadline is June 1 and fast approaching!
Now is the time to make your final edits, get your pages together, fill out that entry form, and mail your manuscript(s) to the appropriate 2009 Maggie Awards coordinator! Use this opportunity to get critiques from two published authors and for the chance to get your story in front of an acquiring editor. And don’t forget the cool jewelry.
