Q is not such a difficult letter to blog about. What a quintessential time in  my life! In my quest to become a novelist, my novel, Crooked Lines, made it as a quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novelist Award. I am waiting for April 24th, for the semi-finalists to be announced. Even if it doesn’t make it, I’m glad it made it this far. It’s going to be published soon, either way. Here are the first few chapters downloadable for free on Amazon.com.

I am also quite excited about another upcoming date. April 26th is the NFL draft and I’m waiting to see if my son, Jake Byrne, gets drafted. A news article mentioning Jake came into my google alerts yesterday and it mentions my blog as well. Quality stuff! Scroll down to Wisconsin Tight End Jake Byrne, and the reporter actually has a link to my blog post from J: Jake and Juvenile Diabetes.

Questions. Questions. I can hardly quell my joy! Will my novel make it to the semi-finals? Will it be a bestseller? Will Jake be drafted in the NFL? What team will pick him? Stay tuned for an exciting end to this A to Z challenge. R is next. Hope there will be some rejoicing!
