ACFW First Impressions 2017 FINALIST!

Exciting News

Every year American Christian Fiction Writers holds the First Impressions contest for unpublished writers. For the first time, this year I decided to enter one of my manuscripts and I am over the moon to announce that I am one of three finalists in the historical romance category!

I wish I could do a vlog so you could see just how excited I am, but I have a cold with a sore throat and you all don’t deserve the torture that is my voice right now.

Suffice to say, this:Β  I got the call yesterday afternoon as I was leaving my children’s dentist’s office (walking to our van) and the second I hung up the phone I was doing such a big happy dance my kids busted up laughing and said I was bouncing our van. This, despite having been on the verge of falling asleep in the lobby minutes before. Nothing like awesome news to brighten an otherwise miserable day and bring energy to the virus weary.

I also want to add a big congratulations to all my fellow finalists, especially those in the Historical Romance category:

Dawne BeckelΒ  & Savanna Kaiser

You can read the names of the finalists in each category HERE.

The winners of the 2017 First Impressions contest will be announced on December 15th.

  1. Congratulations, Kathleen! It’s great to connect with a fellow finalist. πŸ™‚ I had to smile reading about the moment you received the call. It sounded a lot like me. I was in the middle of feeding my one year old in her highchair when I answered the phone. I started dancing too and my daughter started giggling at her crazy mama. πŸ™‚

    Hope you get to feeling better soon! And have a Happy Thanksgiving too! (December 15 seems so far away right now.) πŸ™‚
