I WON! I WON!

Okay, no, I haven’t won anything lately…that I know of. But I could. AND so could YOU! Believe it or not, winning a writing contest will give you cred with and agent or editor, (unless it’s grandma’s bridge club “really dandy book contest”). Do not tell an agent about that. But if you have entered and won a legitimate writing contest and you mention it in a query letter, your chances of piquing an agent’s interest do go up, and so will your confidence as a writer when total strangers like your work with no reason to inflate your ego or pat you on the head.

About Katie Thayne, Author

Katie Thayne (that's me, kind of, seeing as how Katie Thayne is a pen name) is an up and coming author (or so I'd like to think). I have just released my first book, Ms. Impractical Pants, and am currently working on its sequel. I don't have a name for that one yet, so let's just call it Sequel for now. If I'm not working on Sequel, I'm scratching down ideas for the other half dozen or so book ideas swirling around in my brain. Okay, that's a lie, I don't write them down as much as I should, but I still think them, so that should count for something, right? I live in beautiful Moab, Utah and when I'm not writing- on second thought, I won't go there. Let's pretend I sit in a quite office hunched over a keyboard and do nothing but write. The most important thing to know about me, is just because I write doesn't mean I can punctuate. That's why I have an editor- but not for this blogging stuff. Editors ain't cheap and I'm not J.K. Rowling...yet. But I hope that won't keep you from reading my blog.
