So many things!

First of all, thank you to everyone who entered my book giveaway! The winners are:

Cher
Christine H

So I'll be contacting you for your addresses!

Next, I just finished my WIP!!!!! It came out at 78,000 words, pretty good length. I've changed the title from Desert Nomad to Paradise 21. I'm going for a more sci fi title because a lot of it takes place in space. My beta readers are feverishly working away at it, and I'm going to start querying agents soon! (I'll keep you all updated throughout this turbulent period)

Next, my ebook, Nebula's Music, just got a wonderful review here if you'd like to read it.

Thank you for all of your support!
