April BIAM round up

Wow!  What a month!  April was BIAM (Book in a Month) month for Bootcamp 101.  All up we had 11 Bootcampers and one honourary camper (go Cassandra Pennington!!!) participate.  Together we wrote over 112,000 words!!!  We had some star achievers, too!  Nikki Logan took out the BIAM First Place Pro Award with Melissa James taking second place.  In the Semi Pro category newcomer Fiona Gregory took first place and Alison Leake second!   An honourable mention was handed out to Anne Newton, who wrote during amazing hardships and inspired us all!  (Go Anne-you rock!!!)

 Participants include:  Anne Newton, Eleni Konstantine, Rachel Bailey, Fiona Gregory,  Alison Leake, Jacqueline Wilson, Nikki Logan, Tracey Turner, Melissa James, Rosie Smiles, Cassandra Pennington, and Dana Scully.

First place finishers took home Darrel Lea red heart awards.  Chocolate goodness to nourish the writer’s soul!!!

Even those who did not achieve placing are counted as winners, having written more than blank pages and received Bootcamp BIAM bookmarks!!! 

 Amazing accomplishments ladies!!!  Way to go!!!  But wait-there’s more to come…the incomparable Nikki Logan has set another BIAM challenge for May, so look out for further manuscript accomplishments in coming posts!!!

 As always Bootcamp Rocks!!!
