Usually when I receive Google Alerts about my name, Brenda Anderson, they’re for a reporter from the Langley Times, so I almost deleted today’s alert without looking. Good thing I didn’t. This Brenda Anderson alert was actually about me!
The alert’s headline read, “Coon Rapids Writer is Finalist in National Contest”. So I click the link and voila! There’s an article in my local paper, ABC Newspapers, about me being a Finalist in ACFW‘s Genesis contest! They even included a picture! Very sweet. 😀
So does that officially make me an author?
I believe it does. 🙂
Lesson learned: Always look at Google alerts. It might actually be about me!
