I sent my manuscript to one of the Malice Domestic Contests. Of course they request you do not wait until the last minute to send it as volunteers are spending their time reading the submissions. The deadline is tomorrow and I sent it today!
I had nothing but a comedy of errors with THREE printers and the ink. Then of course, Monday was a Post Office Holiday.
I feel bad - but I sent it anyway. I didn't let anything deter me.
Now I can shelve this particular book until April! That's a weight off - I can work on the next two in the series in the meantime.
