SDSU 25th Annual Writers's Conference - Editor's Choice Award

I received this award (much to my surprise) for the first 10 pages of my manuscript I had submitted for an advanced reading session with Katherine Nintzel.
Ms. Nintzel is an editor with HarperCollins.


  1. Good job Allesa, just kidding Alessa, good work!

  2. Thanks Troydog. Man, I better stop telling you stories, you always end up using them against me! :)

  3. Congrats Alessa! I wish you that the rest of your book will be even more awards worthy!

  4. Woohoo! Go Alessa! There will be more where that came from. The hardest part about anything is gaining momentum. The stone is rolling!

  5. Mina-san*,
    Thank you so much for your support! You'll see, I'll get this book finished and it's going to be really awesome!
    And I'll get to thank you all again :)

    *Mina-san = Everyone in Japanese.
