“I had sent out a number of queries to publishers, months before the 2010 event. After becoming a Top Ten finalist in the Claymore Award, I updated the queries and resent them. Suddenly, I had several of these same publishers asking for manuscripts and two publishers offering me contracts within two months of the event. I feel that what I had learned in the events in previous Killer Nashville events had helped me write a ‘killer’ novel and being a finalist for the Claymore grabbed the attention that a first time writer needs to be taken seriously within the publishing industry.”
