Sent off my competition entry…

Superhero is flying away…

Deep breath. Butterflies activated…

This morning I sent off my entry to the Kids’ Book Review Unpublished Manuscript Awards.

I’m a bit nervous about this. I entered last year, and didn’t win. I now know that my manuscript wasn’t ready… this year, I’ve sent off My Princess Wears a Superman Cape. It’s been edited and polished and is a much stronger story than it was when I first wrote it – and I think I may even be in with a chance.

As well as being nervous, I’m also excited. This is a good story and it’s come up better than I thought possible.

Win or not, I’m planning on getting it ready to submit to publishers, after the competition closes, of course.

Fingers crossed.

  1. Congrats Melissa – crossing my fingers for you! I love the idea; got pictures in my mind already!
    Know you didn’t ask, but thought I’d throw my two cents out on the title: ‘My Princess…’ sounds like a parent is the narrator, if this is not the case and the princess is, try wording the title in her voice with something like ‘This Princess…’
    Hope my budding in doesn’t offend you!
