      Hi Debby,
      I’m so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I’ve had some distractions. I was pleased when I saw that Charli responded to you. I think Charli is right. Contest #1 (my contest) “When I grow up” is probably the closest to nonfiction. You did enter that one. The other contest titles can be found at this link
      #2 The little and laugh
      #3 Septolets in motion
      #4 Scars
      #5 9×11 Twitter flash
      #6 Buckin Bull go-round
      #7 Muderous musings
      #8 TUFF
      Do you remember entering any of those? #5 winner will be announced tomorrow (my time 🙂 )

          It seems crazy in blogland at the moment – or is that just me? I’m very excited about the publication of your new book. I haven’t downloaded my copy yet, but am looking forward to reading it. Congratulations! I wish you success with it. 🙂
