Finalist in the NRCA!

Yes, it's true. The Man Who Had Everything is a finalist in the Short Contemporary category of the National Readers Choice Awards. I'm pumped. This contest is judged by readers from all over the country. Where the RITA is judged by other authors, the NRCA is all about which books readers like best. And well, you know, without readers, where would we authors be?

And there's more cool news here. There are five members in my plot group and four of us are published. All four of our published members made the finals in the NRCA this year--all in different categories. Susan Mallery's up for Tempting, Maureen Child is up for More Than Fiends and Teresa Southwick has finaled with The Sheikh's Contract Bride . I find this simply beyond cool.

For a list of all finalists, go to the NRCA homepage at the Oklahoma Romance Writers of America site.

Yay!
