Contest Award for Finding Wychwood

My unpublished manuscript, Finding Wychwood, won second place for historical romance in the recent Ignite the Flame contest. This stuns me, as I have only just begun writing romance novels after ten years of toiling in another genre. I can only think of three reasons for this accolade:

  1. Perhaps my writing voice is suited to historical romance, or
  2. Perhaps I got lucky, or
  3. There has been a terrible mistake

I hope to get to the bottom of this. I will keep you posted about the trials and travails of Finding Wychwood as I seek an agent and enter more contests in the meantime. Whether suited, lucky, or the beneficiary of a mistake, I am hoping for a happily ever after. As is fitting.
