Heavy Weather’s Shiny New Badge from The MAGGIE!

Finalist NSRE pub

 

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?

Stay tuned for a celebratory contest–coming soon!

 

 

 

 

More Excitement: A Surprise Win

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.

Pretty medallion!

Woohoo! Sailing out of Darkness, a Finalist in The Maggie!

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!
