A Hat Trick

I'm in Montana with my folks, visiting my grandma in the nursing home, helping out on our acreage, getting my "rural" on...when I received some very good news!

Working on my farmer's tan.

I got an email today from one of my writing friends that said, "Did you see that you're listed as a finalist in YA, too? Hat trick."

Here's Google's definition of a hat trick: three successes of the same kind, especially consecutive ones within a limited period. This I already know from reading one of my all time favorite hockey romances: Rachel Gibson's See Jane Score.

Now, I've pulled my own hat trick.

No hats...just new boots.

Back in June, PNWA contacted me with exciting news, letting me know my work is a finalist for the middle grade unpublished category and that Dealing with Blue is a finalist for the Nancy Pearl Book Award.

Today, I've just learned that Will's story (book #2 in the chute) is a finalist in the PNWA Literary Contest for the young adult category. I'm so excited! Especially since PNWA never contacted me regarding this one. 

Wanna dance, Tilly Bean?

The end of July is the PNWA conference where the winners will be announced. Can't wait!
