It’s Official …

I returned from a weekend away to find a lovely welcome home gift: my Golden Heart pin and an invitation to a reception in honor of the 2015 RITA and Golden Heart Finalists!


The receipt of these items prompted me to start my “official” countdown to Nationals in New York. If you’re following along, we have five weeks and two days to go. Yay!


Meet the 2015 Golden Heart® Finalists

Hi all,

As many of you know, I’m a finalist in the Short Contemporary Romance category of the 2015 Golden Heart ® Awards. The purpose of the award, according to its sponsor, Romance Writers of America,® is “to promote excellence in the romance genre by recognizing outstanding manuscripts written by members who have not published a Novel or Novella.” For the next several weeks, the Blog of the 2009 Golden Heart Class, the Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood, will be featuring an interview or blog post from a member of this year’s class. Check out the Rubies’ blog (link below) for interviews of my Golden Heart sisters and me. In some instances, commenters will be entered into a drawing to receive a fun prize. I’ll be featured on Tuesday, June 2. I hope to “see” you there!
