I've got a Secret...


Pikes Peak Writers posted the winners and finalists for this year's contest. I write MG novels and I noticed something funny about all three winners for this age group (8-12) -- we all have "Secret" in the title! Hmmm...

Here's hoping that secrets appeal to MG readers, agents and editors...

Congrats, Sherrie! That is so awesome. I also recognize another winner's name. Yat-Yee. She has a terrific blog.

Congrats!

Val said...

Good on you, girl!! A finalist!! Those exclamation marks look like I'm surprised, but I'm really not.

Katie said...

That is so crazy! Now I might have to use the word SECRET in my query or something. I've heard "magical" has the same rate of success!

Hmmm....

CONGRATS!

Corey - Thanks! I'll have to go check out Yat-Yee's blog.

Stephanie - Thanks! Maybe we'll meet in a couple weeks.

Val - Thank you. I so appreciate your support!

Katie - I have heard that about magical. Maybe Secret is one of those words too!

Congratulations! This is such an accomplishment. And I think that's pretty cool about the word Secret. Popular, apparently! Everbody's got a secret. ;)
