The writing life, like others, is one of ups and downs and today is definitely an up day. Each year, RWA, the largest writing organization in the world, recognizes specific books as the best of those published during the year in specific categories. This is its RITA award.
One of the RITA categories is Best Novel with a Romantic Element. And this year, I’m thrilled that HER PERFECT LIFE has been named as a Finalist. It’s an amazing honor and, well, humbling.
Those who know me well know my philosophy that I’ll never write a book I don’t love. And many of those same folks know that HER PERFECT LIFE is extra special because of its subject matter (a female POW left behind) and how emotionally challenging it was to write. To see this book honored in this way . . . well, it defies description.
But it does not defy gratitude. Thank you so much!
And my most heartfelt congratulations to all of the other RITA Finalists and to those selected as Finalists in the GOLDEN HEART.
WOW. What a great day!
