  2. Congrats Faith!
    When does the contest begin?

  3. Will you send out an announcement for the contest Mrs. M? and how do we sign up? I haven't been on the blog for very long so I am not sure how it all works :)

    1. If you are signed up for the Ezine (see sidebar) you will know when the contest starts. I will also announce it here on the blog. When I announce the contest, all the "rules" will be at a link and you will learn everything you need to know to enter it. :-)

    2. thanks! I am looking forwards to it :)

  4. Mrs. Marlow,
    I am trying to start writing my story for the contest and I have a few questions.
    1.because of copyright,can I use two scenes/thought processes from Trouble With Treasure pages 31 through 33 and pg.139? many horses would a rancher own in the 1890's? old, do you imagine, was Andi when she died?

  5. 1. You can use "scenes" from Trouble with Treasure, but you cannot use it word for word. You will have to come up with your own retelling of those scenes (because of copyright). You could write it from another character's point of view if you wanted. That would be fine.

    2. Lots and lots of horses. Hundreds of horses if they are a horse rancher/breeder; less if they focus on cattle; Andi's ranch, of course, is both. :-)

    3. I have no idea. Use your imagination and "kill her off" at any age you want! :-)


Let Andi know what you think!
