Beacon Finalists Announced (#contest)

Hey there guys and gals! I just wanted to let you know (since I’m sure you were just itching to), the First Coast Romance Writers announced their finalists in their annual Unpublished Beacon Contest on their website (http://www.firstcoastromancewriters.com/contests-3/beacon-contest/) last night. Since I’m the contest coordinator, I’m posting the winners here as well, primarily ’cause I can, and because I know this has the potential to be seen by people one way or another. So here they are!

Since your accomplishments are seldom noticed,
and you are rarely thought of, you are expendable.
That doesn’t mean your job isn’t important but if you
were in Star Trek you would be killed off in the first
episode you appeared in.
