I would have loved to try for it but sparing $200 dollars if i won was not happening, even with exchange rate making it more like £150. just too many large bills due this month and next.

I don't think you did.

IIRC, Drak implied / stated that they were, but I did ever see "Word of Ghod" on the question.

I will just note that it was really painful, convincing myself that "limited to one ticket per valid email address" did NOT mean "hey, sign up once per email address you have!"

Ummph.

First, thanks for using the intention of my meaning rather than what I actually said on the emails.

Second, I thought that when I said this:

"For those not familiar with the "first readers" list, these are the people who get each of my manuscripts in electronic format at the same time that I turn them in to the publisher. That is, these are the "raw" pre-copy edit manuscripts, exactly the way that they go from my computer to the publisher."

it implied that I was talking about every manuscript without setting a time limit on it. I can see where adding "for as long as manuscripts keep getting sent in" would have made it clearer, though! :lol:


"Oh, bother!" said Pooh, as Piglet came back from the dead.

My thoughts on this as well, since I unfortunately happen to be unemployed at the moment.

I am sorry I didn't get picked, but since some people may not come through with the money, I still have a chance. The money is going to support the TRMN. I think it is worth it.
