Y’all have seen this before, back in 2014, when Sailing out of Darkness finaled in the Maggie. Even if Heavy Weather doesn’t win, I consider it a huge honor to be short-listed with WFWA (Women’s Fiction Writers Association) girlfriend, Barbara Claypole White and her delicious book, The Perfect Son.
This is a happy year for my book baby — remember the Colorado Award of Excellence final earlier in the year?
Do you remember that Heavy Weather was a finalist in the Colorado RWA’s Award of Excellence Contest for Mainstream Fiction with Strong Romantic Elements? I adore anything that validates my work, my words.
Guess what? Today I learned that the cover of Two from Isaac’s House won the cover contest for Romantic Suspense. Congratulations to Jenny from Seedlings Design Studio for bringing my idea to fruition and giving the book such a gorgeous face.
The Georgia Romance Writers are a talented group of women. I’m reading books from the other finalists in the Strong Romantic Elements category of the Maggie Award for Excellence, and I’m very impressed. This means that, win or lose, I feel hugely honored that they chose Sailing out of Darkness as a finalist. Thank you, ladies!
Y’all know how much fun contests are. Well, this has been a delightful week for my books.
Today, I learned that Sailing out of Darkness is one of three finalists in the Single Title Category (for romantic as opposed to romance fiction) of the Aspen Gold Contest from the Heart of Denver Romance Writers!
Readers in Denver, thank you!
