As a writer I’ve entered many contests over the years. Sometimes I’ve completely struck out. Sometimes I’ve made the finals. Sometimes I win. Each contest has taught me something, even if it’s only been to have better patience.
Making the National Reader’s Choice Awards Finals is HUGE for me. It’s something I’ve dreamed about for a really long time. And I am absolutely FLOORED by the amazingly talented ladies in my category. Kind of made me stand back, shake my head, and say “Really?”
Take a look at these names and see if you have any wonder why I am literally doing the Happy Dance!
CONTEMPORARY SINGLE TITLE
Sarah Morgan / Sleigh Bells in the Snow
Roxanne St. Clair / Barefoot in the Sun
Carly Phillips / Perfect Fling
Carly Phillips / Dare to Love
Jodi Thomas / Can’t Stop Believing
Brenda Novak / When Summer Comes
Candis Terry / Anything But Sweet
Winners will be announced at the RWA Conference in San Antonio this summer. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but believe me when I say I am really just honored to be mentioned in the same breath with this unbelievably talented group of ladies!
