The winners of the award were announced yesterday (I just found out):
First prize: Marilyn Hilton
Runners-up: Pati Hailey and Karen Bonner
Congrats to all the winners!
Though I didn't win, I'm still hugely motivated to finish my YA novel. Many thanks to all involved in nominating for and judging the Sue Alexander Award. Just being nominated is a great honor, and gives me hope for eventually getting my novels published. Who knows? Maybe this one will be my first. :-)
