Kobi’s story FINALLY won first place in a writing contest!! It was only for the first chapter of the book, and it wasn’t for a publishing contract, but now I have bragging rights and a check! I finally got paid for writing something – and they spelled my name and the title correctly!
The contest was put on by 2012 Writers-Editors Network Annual International Writing Competition and we won first place in the Children’s book division. You can go to:

1st PLACE – Heather Hamel, Elkton, Fla. – “Kobi: Memoirs of a Mustang,” Chapter 1, Middle Grade Book – This opening chapter immediately engages readers in a fast-paced story that stays in the viewpoint and character of a fast-paced horse.
