Big congratulations to our friend CJ Darlington, the big winner this weekend at the Christian Writer's Guild Writing For the Soul conference. Her unpublished novel Thicker Than Blood took first prize in CWG's Operation First Novel 2008, netting her $20,000 and a contract with Tyndale House Publishers!
It could not have happened to a more deserving person -- CJ has always been such a big supporter of Erica's and my work. In fact, TitleTrakk, which CJ founded with her sister, recently started hosting Erica's and my new crime/mystery series, Best Mann For The Job.
We wish CJ all the best in her new career as a novelist! Send her your best wishes at her profiles on Facebook or Shoutlife.
P.S. -- Thanks to Diane Viere for posting conference photos on Facebook.
