Exciting Times!

I don’t tend to post a lot about me on this blog – and perhaps I should – but today I need to whoop-n-holler a little bit. It’s been an exciting year so far.

Back in February, I decided to enter the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Carol Awards. I had three books release last year, and I hemmed and hawed about which one to enter. Well, I gave up and entered all three. It was announced this evening that I have two of the three finalists in the novella category. “Her Redcoat” in “The Backcountry Brides” and “In Sheep’s Clothing” in “A Bouquet of Brides.” Yowzer! The winner will be announced at the ACFW Conference in September.

At about the same time, I entered the RWA (Romance Writers of America) Faith, Hope, & Love Readers Choice Award. I only entered one of the books in that contest, “In Sheep’s Clothing,” and it’s also a finalist there. The winner will be announced at the end of July.

And then, knock me over with a feather, I was nominated for the ACFW Editor of the Year! I have no idea who nominated me (they don’t tell you), but I’m now a finalist in that contest as well. The winner will be announced at the ACFW Conference in September.

Did I mention that it’s been an exciting year so far? Well … it sure has. Even if I don’t win a single one of these contests, at least I know that I’m good enough to romp with the big dogs.
