In honor of Leap Day, I just want to take a moment to celebrate every one of you who've taken a leap of faith this past year...taken a chance on something you didn't think you could do...taken on the hope of achieving a goal you'd dreamed about without any guarantees.
Yay to you! Believing in yourself and your "vision" may not be enough to see it realized, but I think it's the first and most important step. (Then, of course, there's all the hard work that follows. :-)
Along those lines of believing and taking chances, I want to congratulate L.A. Mitchell on her first big story release: Love, Texas Style, a wonderful anthology by authors of The Wild Rose Press (http://www.thewildrosepress.com/), just came out in e-book form today and will be available in print on March 28, 2008. L.A.'s short story, "The Lost Highway," is one of twelve captivating tales in this book, and I'm so excited I'll now get to read it!
P.S. You'll want to stop by her blog (http://www.la-mitchell.blogspot.com/) for her contest, too. Every Thursday in March she'll be drawing a name, and the lucky winner will take home some terrific prizes--from gift certificates to a Texas-themed basket to an Elvis CD!!
