Winners of the Author U Draft to Dream Contest

I'm here in Denver, Colorado as one of the Finalist in the Draft to Dream in the Author U unpublished contest. Back in May 2016, I submitted book 2 of my HELP ME! series titled TALK TO ME, which is one of the finalist in the contest for Young Adults. Listed below are the Finalists and the Winners of the contest.

I'm sad to say I am not one of the Winners, but it is an honor to be a Finalist in the contest this year in 2016.

A review from one of the judges about TALK TO ME:

"WOW! This book broke my heart, but as hard as it was to read, it was a worth while story." 






CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who have entered and to the Winners on Draft to Dream.
