Death by Chocolate and the Daphne 2014 - Jo-Ann Carson

Death by Chocolate and the Daphne 2014

The Kiss of Death on-line chapter of the RWA met for their annual Death  by Chocolate event in San Antonio during the Nationals. Chocolate, laughter and lots of hugging. It was a great event. The chocolate was divine and I don’t regret a bite. Waiting to hear the results of the unpublished Daphne du Maurier contest gave me the jitters, but that’s all part of the writing life.
I didn’t place this year. I received an honorable mention and (drum roll) a request for a full manuscript from the agent who judged my category. Exciting times.DSCN2433

  1. A request for a full manuscript !!! I’m delighted for you, Jo-Ann. The chocolate looks pretty amazing too.

  2. A request for a full!! Pfft, who cares about the placing. 🙂 That’s wonderful, Jo-Ann, congratulations! Best of luck with it. And all those chocolate treats look so yummy!

    1. Oh Ros
      I love your attitude. To be honest, I felt quite disappointed, but you are of course right. The half-full glass of water has an agent request in it.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  3. I am now a member of Kiss Of Death but have not yet had a chance to attend. But considering how much chocolate figures in my writing it’s definitely a bucket list event. In the meantime I may have to host my own Death By Chocolate event.

    1. Hi Pat
      Welcome to our KOD chapter. It really rocks. You’ll have to join in on our one line Wednesday fun on Twitter. You’ll get to meet a lot of us there. I can’t say enough good things about the chapter (supportive, friendly, fun, hard working for the cross-genre…). There were two Vancouver writers at the Death by Chocolate event, Toni Anderson and Katheryn Jane who I sat beside. It’s great to have you in the group.
      Chocolate Events are always fun.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Congrats on receiving the agent request for the full manuscript, Jo-Ann! Wonderful to see the pictures of Death by Chocolate party spread. You are a wise woman not to regret eating chocolate 🙂

  5. Wow, Jo-Ann! Request for a full manuscript!!!
    Who cares about placing when you’ve got the “real icing on the cake” with a request.
    Go, girl, go!
