Ahhhh.... that time of year again.

Oh yeah baby! It's that time of year again... Judging!!!

I judge 2 contest in the year:

Yellow Rose unpubed and Daphne Du Maurier Pubbed. I love them both. I know what a trator I am to TRW, but maybe I'll even judge for that this year... maybe.

So I'm sitting here surrounded in contest pages for the yellow rose contests and I must tell you I am so impressed with this years submissions - some serious talent out there. It also makes me wonder why some of these great authors aren't published yet.

Is anyone judging some good contests out there? Are you finding that writers are getting better and better? Lots of competition out there!

Golden Heart. Almost done my judging and Passionate Ink's Stroke of Midnight. I also do the TRW's Golden Opportunity. Don't know if I will this year though.

Time. *sigh*

I finished Golden Heart and New Voices already this year. I volunteered for Du Maurier pubbed, but haven't heard anything. Have you heard already from them? Also, the More than Magic, pubbed.

Hello Michelle! Are you a superwoman too or what? :D

Du Maurier pubbed is a huge contest - they get so many entries they actually put you on a Yahoo loop! :D I haven't heard anything yet this year, except the standard... Thank you for judging previous contests, would you like to judge again?

We'll probably here something closer to contest deadline. I don't know if it's your first year judging Du Maurier, but it's my favourite contest to judge... and not just because you get free books! LOL!!!

Not a superwoman - just a prolific reader! :-D

I love RS so can't wait to read the Du Maurier pubbed stuff.

I'm judging Passionate Ink's Passionate Plume contest again this year. I'm limiting myself to that one and probably the TRW Golden Opportunities contests. I did four or five last year, and I just ran out of time.

I was thinking of throwing my name in the judging ring for the Golden Opportunities this year, but I dunno...
