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.
I am excited to share the news with you, my readers, that Dance With A Cowboy, my novella in the Wild West Christmas Anthology has been selected as a 2015 finalist in the Holt Medallion Award contest! Winners will announced at the Virginia Romance Writers’ Awards Luncheon on June 13th. This novella was my first attempt at writing a shorter story, so I am doubly happy it has made the final round of judging!
May your Christmas Season be filled with love, hope, and peace. (And perhaps a few of my books :-))
This weekend, stop by Barnes & Noble in Cherryvale Mall and say hi! I’ll be there talking about writing the historical romance along with Liz Czukas (Young Adult) and Beverly Long (Romantic Suspense) and signing our newest releases. What better for a Christmas gift than a spanking new romance! Would love to see you there!
Saturday ~ Nov. 15th from 2pm to 4pm!
Come visit with me today at Petticoats and Pistols to talk about a favorite subject–our favorite movie cowboys!
