Golden Heart Scores

I got my GH scores today. I got an 8, 4, 8, 8.3, 7.2. This put me in the top 25% of the entrants. I was pleased with scores. Where the 4 came from, I have no idea. Well, I knew it wouldn't appeal to everyone.

While I'm glad I entered, I don't know that I would enter again. The stress was more than I really liked. My friend Melissa was far more riled about the 4 than I was. Contests are subjective, even the GH. I'm happy with my scores, my ms passed muster from my standpoint.

Congrats on the good scores! I'd be riled about the 4, but then contests have a way of getting my blood pressure up. *g*

Thanks, Amy. It was a "virgin" ms, I'd never entered it in a contest. Its sister got slammed in chapter contests last year so I decided to go with something else. I believe I am retired from the contest circuit. The temptation to enter "Finally A Bride" is there because I can, but I'm hoping I have some agent action by then.

Those are good scores! Well, you had that one pesky 4, but you can't please everyone with your books. You should be pleased! So which category did you enter?

Thanks, Kacey. I entered the paranormal category. It was a vampire story. Some people really detest vampires, so I knew somebody wasn't going to like it.

Unfortunately, I can't start submitting it. It's actually the sequel to another book that is in the midst of agent submission limbo.
