Well, unless you're *really* new, or possibly visually challenged, you probably know that I am a finalist in the 2008 EPPIE contest. My erotic novel, Woman of the Mountain, was chosen as a finalist in the Erotica category, and in oh, probably 6-8 hours, the winners of the EPPIEs will be chosen at EPICon in Portland, Oregon while I'm stuck in my living room on the East coast (I won't lament further about *that* twist of fate).
But, hey! This is electronic publishing we're talking about and wouldn't you know it, our executives that are in Portland are hooked up and absolutely focused on what is truly important.
Carol MacLeod, our wonderful Secretary sent this link to a piece about some of the winners of the EPIC New Voices competition.
New Voices is a writing competition for middle and high school students. These young ladies are some of the participants and winners.
This, my friends, is what it's all about...
