AUTHOR'S NOTES: Nomination & Story Recs

Sorry if I made you think that I was adding a chapter. But since you've read BSTUB, you already know that I ramble.

So many of you absolutely awe me with your kindness. An angel nominated this story for award on Avant Garde Awards, which is for new authors. The categories she nominated it for was Best Bella and Best Novice Author.

If you know of a new author that you'd like to nominate, I hope that you do. If you liked this story, it would be awesome if you voted for it.

Nominations are Oct. 30 – Nov 14, 2010

First round of voting is Nov 20-Dec 4, 2010

Second round of voting is Dec 11—Dec 26, 2010

The Avant Garde Website is: twilightfb-awards DOT blogspot DOT com/

I have always found that the award sites are a GREAT way to find a good story and I usually favorite them and keep going back until I've read them all.

Another thing that I do is go to communities where readers list stories that they think people would be interested in. Here are some that I know of:

YOU WOULD WANT TO DO A SEARCH BY COMMUNITY in FFn to find these.

There are also some great websites for stories:

I have had several nice people give referrals and such, but I had to wipe my hard drive and all of my favorites and such went bye-bye. In addition, I hadn't realized that lord knows how many emails that I sent out never really went out. If I've slighted anyone, I didn't mean to.

One last note: I hope to be posting a new story soon. If it's a go, the first chapter might make you think it's a little bit like BSTUB, but it is not. I hope you'll enjoy it.
