word that my novella (a novella is a short novel or work of fiction) in Kiss the Bride
(my novella is titled "Angel Food") has finaled in the 2007 Inspirational Readers Choice Contest! What an honor. I'm thrilled and pleased to be in the running in the novella category with two wonderful authors, Robin Lee Hatcher
and DiAnn Mills
The 2007 Inspirational Readers Choice Contest is sponsored by FHL (Faith, Hope, & Love), which is the inspirational chapter of RWA (Romance Writers of America). Part of FHL's purpose is: "to promote excellence in romantic and women's fiction that glorifies God and promotes biblical principles."
I'm proud to participate in this prestigious contest that's judged by readers across America.
The winners will be announced and given awards in July in Dallas. But all are winners, in my opinion.
There are seven categories. Great authors and great books!
