Changing Fortunes, is a Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® Finalist in the Historical Romance Category.
I had a Sally Field moment of, 'they like me, they really like me' -- finally. Then I hung up the phone and screamed loud enough to have my dog cowering. Okay, before I hung up, I might have also screamed to the board member who called me that she had made my day and something about never winning anything... It wasn't a Sally Field moment, but it was close.
It's an incredible honor to be a finalist in such a prestigious contest. I feel like my writing has been riding a wave that has finally crested.
I still might get knocked around on this journey to publication, but for today, I'm so enjoying the ride.
