So excited!!!

When I first saw my name on the list (as Ara Jane Burkland), I thought, Hey. There's someone with a name like mine. Then I realized it was me, since I've never seen my middle name used online and my last name's spelling is tricky. Anyway, the pre-rewrite version of FIND ME (my manuscript out on submission with editors right now), called LIE TO ME, may not have won the SCBWI work-in-progress grant for a contemporary novel, but I got a letter of merit! Thank you, SCBWI!!!
