I am still wet behind the earlobes in this writing thing,and so excited....To start off,I sent a song I wrote to a promotion place in Nashville for free evaluation.I got a letter back saying my lyrics are great,(This was for a two verse song,mind you!!!),so I added another verse and sent it in to their Christmas 2013 songwriting contest.my song,'Our Dogs gave us Fleas for Christmas' took third place in this INTERNATIONAL competition,MY VERY FIRST ATTEMPT AT SONGWRITING,AND ENTERING IT IN A CONTEST!!!!!!! In addition to a cash prize,they will demo my song,and it will be put on Amazon and itunes on a Christmas album,that will go on sale later this year for this coming Christmas season....

Now,the possible financial benefits from this is nice,sure.But,my #1 reason I am so excited by this is BY THE EXPOSURE!!!Now,I know anybody can put their music on line to sell,but to be told my lyrics are good enough to be put up for folks to buy,it is just the icing on the cake....

I have entered another songwriting contest with another of my songs,'I want more Christ this year for Christmas',as well as 3 or 4 others in for demoes.So far,they have told me my lyrics are worthy of shopping around.....The future looks GREAT.from where I sit,baby.......
