The numbers are in and although I didn’t win I am still very proud to have been in the top five for the Holt Medallion for my novella Dance With a Cowboy in the Wild West Christmas Anthology! From what I hear from the contest coordinator, the competition was extremely stiff this year. I am looking forward to next year when I can submit The Gunslinger and the Heiress and see how it stacks up to other historical romances of the year. The one thing I love about writing is that there is always room to grow and improve. I think that is what keeps it so fascinating to me year after year.
