I Won the Spring Fling Contest at Changeling Press!

I still can’t believe it. My novella, Nobody Rides for Free, is being published at Changeling Press this fall! I am so honored and excited and my face hurts from smiling. You can see the blurb about the contest by clicking below and scrolling down half the page.

(Before clicking, keep in mind that Changeling is an erotic fiction company intended for adults only.)
Changeling Press: Spring Fling has TWO Winners! Razor: Sara Jay with Nobody Rides for Free

This marks the fourth writing contest I’ve won in about a year; I won the Jefferson County Library 14th Annual Poetry Contest this spring, as well as two contests in my Facebook writing groups, WordStew and In a Sentence. This, however, is the largest contest I’ve ever won, and it marks the begging of, forgive the cliche, the dream I’ve had since age six coming true. I’ve been a full-time working writer for several years now and can honestly say I’ve made a living and supported my family with my writing, and now I can also honestly say that I’m an author. A novelist. A writer coming to a Kindle near you!

I will keep a section on my blog devoted to my fiction soon; in the meantime, you can follow me at my new author Facebook page, Sara Jay, which is the name I will be using for my erotic supernatural romance.

Thank you so much for your continued support. I am so excited to share this journey with all of my friends, family, and readers. Who knows what’s in store next?

Job Markets; And April = Right Brain Projects Galore

Some posts for today…

Retail Job Market
Retail Jobs Up and Down Across the Country

Health Care Job Market
The Present and Future of Healthcare Jobs

And a new Creative Copy Challenge (I just love this site!):
Challenge 26

By the way, April is the month of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), Script Frenzy, and Karine’s April Art Challenge, all things that I really want to take part in… Not so sure it’s doable, but I’m going to give it a try!

I’ve also been keeping up with the monthly Creative Experiments at Daisy Yellow. Her ideas are just amazing! I highly recommend taking part, even if you only do a couple of challenges, because they will make your day richer and give your brain the novelty it craves.

Sage Saves Jack and Sally’s Christmas

jackA few weeks ago I mentioned Sage’s favorite bedtime story, which she calls “Christmas Eve,” and a few people expressed interest in it. I thought I’d type it out to share it with you, though it does typically change a little every night.

We usually make up at least one new story that revolves around something we did that day during naptime–but this has become a bedtime standard!
