My colleague’s novel excerpt, PURE, made the Top 100 in the General Fiction category of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Woot! Could you please take time to read and review her novel excerpt? You won’t be disappointed. I promise!

Keep Moving Forward!!!

Today I turned in my application for admission to PhD candidacy – a monumental step in the life of a graduate student. I am tremendously happy and grateful for making it this far, but recognize that there is still a lot more to accomplish in this journey. Planning to keep moving forward – though I’m praying for a snow day tomorrow 😉
