More Celebrations with Debbie Roome!

This has been one exciting week for our own Debbie Roome. I announced some of the early news at Facebook earlier in the week, but then more news just kept coming, so I decided to post one combination post here with all the news as it stands right now - and if she gets any more, we'll share it too!

Debbie had several short stories chosen as winners in Sunpenny Publishing's annual contest. She won one 1st place prize, one 3rd place, and two Highly Commended awards.

But she was even more excited over someone else's win, because her 13-year-old daughter Chantelle received a Highly Commended award for her own story, too, in the Young Writers' Short Story Competition.

Then, later in the week, Debbie got word that she'd also won a New Zealand writer's competition, with a prize of $500, and publication in an anthology that will be released in October!

Congratulations, Debbie and Chantelle! We're all Snoopy-dancing for you, and with you!! Wooo-hooo!!
