Kathryn Magendie said...

I am second! whoop! Heading off to the li-berry soon.

I had something in the Cuppa for Writers - it was a fun experience - and I got paid..whoop whoop!

Jill Kemerer said...

Thanks for the tip! I'm going to check it out!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Unbreakable/Kimmi, you are first! I like the CoC books too.

Hug the liberry lady for me, Kat. :)

Jill, you're welcome!

Debbie said...

Honey, you know I don't have anything publishing worthy! But, would they send me some money anyway?

Terri Tiffany said...

I already sent one in for the contest. But hadn't been back to check the new books. Thanks!

Janna Qualman said...

Great news! Thanks for sharing the details.

*hugs* Thinking of you.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Debbie, you need to write CoC and give them your address. LOL

You're welcome, Terri.

Thank you, Janna. :)

Melissa Marsh said...

Hmm. Not sure if I have any stories that would work, but I may do some checking on the ol' hard drive.

Kasie West said...

Do they have anything called cuppa sarcasm because that is my parenting style. :) Thanks for the heads up, Angie.

Could not do justice to mom with my abilities. Good luck to everyone that enters.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Happy, huntin', Melissa. :)

Kasie, LOL.......would be right up my alley too. Maybe they'll have a MUGGA SARCASM soon and we can both submit. :)

Oren, even if we could write like Faulkner, we still couldn't do justice.

Jody Hedlund said...

Those look like great contests! Wish I had the time to enter, but everything, even the laundry, is on hold until I finish my WIP!

Cheffie-Mom said...

Very cool! Thanks for the links!

Marguerite said...

Sounds like a great contest. Just too maxed out, right now. Thanks for the link, Angie.
