It never fails...most days I have trouble coming up with something to blog about, but today I planned to talk about the great writing weekend I had while my peeps were away at Anime Next, and the t-shirt they bought for me. I took pictures and everything.
Then I heard about Deidre Knight's recent post over at the ESPAN blog regarding the RWA attitudes about e-publishing, so I planned to blog about that.
BUT...I got a message on my voice mail last night that trumps everything, so I decided to push those other blogs off for a bit and crow about my good news:
SKIN has won 1st Place in the erotic category of the More Than Magic Contest sponsored by Romance Writers Ink!
I'm thrilled! Now the book goes on to the final round judging and the grand prize winner will be announced July 11th. Let me say, as much as I would love to win the grand prize, it's an honor just to be nominated, as the saying goes. I know SKIN was up against some awesome books by fabulous authors, so to take 1st place is a bit humbling.
Here's a link to the winner's list: http://rwimagiccontests.wordpress.com/2009-more-than-magic-placements/. Congratulations to everyone and best of luck!
Stay tuned for more on the bumped topics...
