We had a rousing mid-month update at our Sleuths' Ink meeting on Saturday. Everyone read the first page of their JANO project. Twelve beginnings were read and enjoyed by all. The genres ranged from cozy mysteries to paranormal to romantic suspense to YA historical fiction. We have a talented group of writers and these novels-to-be are promising.
Congrats to our top three JANO contenders as of last Saturday:
Shirley McCann - just under 24,000
Stephanie Jarkins - 22,750
Rose Lombardo - 20,061
By now, their word count is even higher. Hopefully, yours is as well. Let's get our second wind and bring it home for JANO.
