OMG, I'm a RITA finalist!
Which is not a good thing, since I was driving. I almost didn't answer the phone - cell phone while driving isn't banned (yet) in my town, but I don't normally mix chatting and driving anyway. Too many crazies on the road these days.
But I was coming up on a red light, so I answered anyway. When fellow author Jeannie Adams identified herself as a Romance Writers of America board member, I thought, "Why the heck is she calling me?"
And then she told me the news: A Little Light Magic is a finalist in RWA's RITA Award in the Single Title Contemporary category!!
Too cool! I'm still floating.
But I can't afford to stay on the ceiling for long, not with a BOOK DEADLINE looming next week. Yes, I'm almost finished with the first book in my upcoming paranormal WATCHERS series.
Stay tuned - once the manuscript is emailed off to my editor, I'll pop in to tell you more about the heroes of this series - a clan of half-demon/half-human warriors, modern descendants of the cursed Biblical angels known as the Watchers.
