Jess, thanks for posting the list. I joined ACFW last year--though I've been involved with other writing organizations for years--after the Genesis deadline so this was my first time to enter as a member. I blogged about how excited I was to get the call. :-)

If you're at all interested, come over to my blog or www.ashberrylane.net to susbcribe to our infrequent, humorous newsletter. Might make you smile.

How fun to see my name in your site! It never dawned on me to post the finalist list -- or to write about getting "the call," as Christina did. (Bet I'm going to now!)
