i just got a call from Joni Labaqui at WOTF and I placed third in Writers of the Future 2006 Q4!
I was really really excited because I thought Joni said first place. I guess it was a case of hearing what you wanted. Anyway, I'm still really excited because this is also my first publication. Not only do I get some prize money, I should get paid at a really nice rate per word.
