If your windows rattled from an ear-splitting WHOO HOO from Kentucky, I admit it. It was me. I was so thrilled when I received the news, my happiness exploded.
Out of five hundred entries in the Kensington Brava / Romantic Times "Writing with the Stars" contest, I'M ONE OF THE TEN FINALISTS! At first, I couldn't breathe and I have to confess my heart still revs up a notch when I replay the editor's call in my head.
The contest will be launched in their November issue where our intros and photos will appear. Then my paranormal romance, Eternity's Mark will compete in five rounds of competition starting with the December issue of Romantic Times.
The winner will be announced at the Romantic Times convention and in their May issue. This could mean a publishing contract for Eternity's Mark if the judges like it and if the readers show their approval with a supportive vote.
I just have to remember to breathe...
