I booked my editor and agent appointments today for Romance Writers of America’s national conference in Orlando. My plane tickets are bought; hotel room is reserved. Now all I need is a cocktail dress and my bikini, and I’m ready to go!
I practically feel like a movie star right now.
I’m still in shock. Yesterday, during my break at work, I looked at my cell phone and saw that I had six missed phone calls from an unknown number, all within an hour. It didn’t dawn on me that yesterday was the day RWA (Romance Writers of America) notifies Golden Heart finalists. I’d completely forgotten because, quite frankly, I didn’t think I had a snowball’s chance in you-know-what of finaling.
So, I called the number back, and when I got the news, I cried. I’m officially a finalist for the 2017 Golden Heart in Contemporary Romance, Short. Did I mention I’m still in shock? I keep checking RWA’s page to see my name, just to make sure it’s still there. No, it wasn’t a mistake. It’s the culmination of so many dreams I’ve had. It also couldn’t have happened at a better time, when I was beginning to wonder if I was being delusional about being any good at this writer thing. I cannot explain to you have amazed and excited I am. Thank you, everyone, for all your wonderful support. Wish me luck!

My novel PERFUME OF THE SIREN was selected as a finalist in the Georgia Romance Writers’ 2015 Unpublished Paranormal Romance Contest (The Maggies). I am so excited. I don’t even care if I win, I’m just glad I finaled!
I received PRO status at the Romance Writers of America. That means that I’m officially designated as a professional writer!
