Baker's Dozen Submitted - Urp

Y'all might already know about Authoress' Baker's Dozen and the fact that the submission window for adult manuscripts opened this morning.  What you might not know - because I didn't know myself until this morning - is that I entered the contest this time.  Sure, I've tried entering before but I never managed to make the submission window.  Today, I woke up, got my shit together, and made it in!

I got the confirmation email this morning letting me know Djinnocide will be entry #14.

Here's hoping I get some good responses.  Hell, I'll settle for some not so good responses.  The only thing I really don't want is crickets.  I always feel bad for the people who get crickets.  So, keep your fingers crossed the crickets stay away.

And now... the nausea begins.  Oh, and it came with a friend - Self-Doubt. 


Good thing I got that prescription for Prilosec yesterday.  I haven't started taking it yet, but it should help with my indi-stress-tion. 


  1. I entered one of the contests on MSFV's (aka The Authoress) a couple of years ago and almost die from the stress (and almost broke my finger hitting the 'refresh' key over and over again)! I empathize, B.E. - and, at the same time, have my fingers and toes crossed!!!

    I'll head over and have a look-see. Breathe, my friend, breathe :)

  2. I don't think they're up yet. They aren't up yet... are they? They can't be up yet. I'm not ready!!

    :hyperventilates a little:

  3. No, they're not up yet - relax :)

  4. When they are up, let us know so we can go fumigate for crickets! No crickets for DJINNOCIDE!

    I'm so glad to see you being proactive, B.E.! *applauds*

  5. Woot! How exciting! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Now stop worrying. It's WAY too late to worry, and has been since you hit the Submit button. Just sit back, pretend you're on a roller coaster, and try to enjoy the ride. ;-)

  6. I'll let y'all know, Silver. And thanks. I'm trying. Someday, something's gotta work. Ya know?

    Thanks, Deb. I know it's too late for worrying. What'll happen will happen. Still doesn't stop me from getting all urpy when I think about it. Like "OMG, what have I done?!"
