That's the kind of joy I felt today.
Midnight Promises is a 2009 RWA Golden Heart finalist.
I checked voicemail while I was at school. Got a little thrill when I heard there was a message. Prayed it wasn't the usual recording asking if I wanted to extend the warranty on my minivan. It wasn't! It was one of my favorite historical romance authors--who happens to be on the RWA Board of Directors--calling with the good news.
Congrats to all the finalists and to all who finished a manuscript and entered this year. Thanks for the warm wishes I've already received.
I want to jump up and down and scream, "I'm going to Hollywood, baby!" (Except Nationals is in DC this year.) Hmm, I feel an eBay shopping spree coming on. More later . . .
