I know I've been a terrible blogger lately! But I've been totally absorbed in writing a new book which is due May 1. I'm happy to say I'm 43,000 words into a 55-60,000 word manuscript. And I'm having so much fun with it!
But now, the main reason I'm blogging today... I got a call that my most recent book, A Forever Christmas, is a finalist in the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence! They'll be naming the winners around April 1st. But I'm so totally thrilled and honored to simply be a finalist! You can check out the full list of finalists on the Southern Magic Chapter website. Gayle Wilson is an amazing woman, another reason this is such a great honor. Plus, two of my fellow Seeker bloggers are also finalists! It's like old times again, coming up against each other in writing contests (which is what brought our group of friends together in the first place). :)
