ACFW Genesis Contest

As CSFF Blog Tour Overlord Rebecca Luella Miller said in a comment in my half-baked eulogy for GFW Magazine, I do have some pretty good news.

I'm a finalist in the 2008 ACFW Genesis contest. I and five other people made it into the finals for the Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Allegory category.

I was a bit shocked. I knew there were quite a few entrants (I forget the exact number right now) and I figured I didn't have a chance. I'm not complaining. The first round judges had some very complimentary things to say (one in particular) and so now I need to finish polishing it up and send it off for the next round.

Sadly, I won't find out how I do until September when the ACFW Conference comes to Minnesota, but my wife and I have already found a babysitter so we can be at the banquet. I doubt I'll win, but it'll certainly be fun to find out.

Congratulations, John!

And happy birthday!

I tried to send you an e-mail to the address you registered with at The Anomaly but it bounced.

Have a great day, and come on back to visit us at The Anomaly soon (http://wherethemapends.proboards58.com/). If for no other reason than to tell us what transpires in September.

By the way, I'm scheduled to be on faculty for the ACFW conference this year, so maybe we can meet in person.

Yea!! Again, extending congratulations. It's hard to say I'm pulling for you, what with other CSFF'ers in the finals as well, but I am exceedingly happy!!
