Tomorrow's Tartish Tears

Know what? I'm a cry baby.


But see, the thing is, I cry whether I am HAPPY or SAD. So tomorrow I KNOW I will cry. I just don't know why yet. Tomorrow is the date they post the semi-finalists for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. So there will be either tears of joy, or tears of sad... Speaking of tears... I had a moment of being touched this weekend. On Friday I had my first ever review from somebody I didn't know at all. I shared it on facebook, and one of my high school friends posted a link to The Azalea Assault with the suggestion my whole high school class read my book as a summer read! I really was truly moved.

But my REAL blog efforts today are at Burrowers, Books and Balderdash where I am sharing a ton of fabulous books that had their beginnings as ABNA contestants.

It's so cool when you get a review from someone you don't know - and when people start to spread the word! :D

Fingers crossed for you for tomorrow, Hart!

Congrats on making it this far! Fingers are crossed for you and I hope you'll be shedding happy tears! I cry when moved too. Even sappy commercials can get me.

Aw, congrats on the review and the love from old high school friends. And good luck tomorrow. I was knocked out of ABNA in the last round. I look forward to the day when someone recognizes my special brand of genius. LOL. In the meantime, my toes are crossed for you!

Hart Johnson said...

Thank you so much for the luck and crossed parts, friends!

Vicki-Love that! I hope your brand of genius gets picked up, too!

CRIERS UNITE!!!!

Ok, so I'm always STOKED to know another very emotional, person who cries for the good, bad, mad, and inbetween. It might be a scary day if I ever STOP crying. I can't even imagine an event of any type of importance that would not result in the oh-so-sexy mascara lines down my face.

Anxiously awaiting your news tomorrow... and hoping for pure AWESOME as if your books are half as incredible as you, they're pretty darned cool. :)

Good luck! Er...I hope none of your classmates are IN your book? I think I might use a pseudonym if I ever write a novel. Stopping by from A-Z

Helena said...

I already checked my crystal ball and it says you're in at ABNA. So make those tears happy ones.

jaybird said...

Good luck Hart. From one cry baby to another. LOL
