Fourth Is The New First

Not really, it isn't at all. But I placed fourth in a First Chapter of a Novel contest for the first chapter of my (in process) novel, The Second Whack. Synposis as follows:

15 year-old Annabelle Macalester is obsessed with the identity of her anonymous sperm donor and, unbeknownst to her two moms, tracks him down over the Internet. But when an altercation with a drug-crazed neighbor leaves the neighbor dead and Annabelle facing murder charges, Annabelle learns more about identity, family and belonging than she bargained for.

There were 142 entries, so I am pretty stoked. You can read my chapter and the other four winners' chapters at Writing Show's web site.
