I've just received the news that Project: Parenthood is a finalist for the HOLT MEDALLION AWARD from the Virginia branch of the RWA! As the boys above say - WOO-HOO!
Understandably I'm chuffed to bits with the news and had to pop in and tell you all!!! This is especially fantabulous as my very good buddie Natasha Oakley is also a finalist with her Accepting The Boss's Proposal!!! I feel like Natasha and I have already taken such a long journey together and this is our first year entering contests (We shared the trials and tribulations of figuring out how to enter together!) so to be there side by side is wonderful! I could go all mushy about what a great gal she is but she's British and she'd HATE THAT. So I won't.
Project: Parenthood was a lovely book to write and the first I worked on with my lovely Editor Jenny Hutton - so a big shout out to Jenny for all her help!!! YOU ROCK BABE. And remember what I said about never marrying or having kids or even thinking of a career change... We agreed you'd NEVER LEAVE ME, remember???
Am now off to celebrate in TRUE IRISH FASHION!!!!
The full list is now up here and I'm even more ecstatic to see that another great gal pal Ally Blake is also on the list with her Meant-To-Be-Mother!!!! What a jolly good showing for the Romance line and what a hellish good showing for the PHS !!! It just keeps getting better... Now if Ally would just come back off her silly holiday we could all party together!
