Breaking news!!

Just had some lovely news.
My Harlequin Romance PRINCESS AUSTRALIA has finalled in the Golden Quill for Best Traditional Romance 2008.
Yay!
Last year was the 'year of the comp' for me. I decided to enter 6 of them and was lucky to final in 4. This year, I've only entered in a few so it's nice to final in one of them. :)
In other news, I think I mentioned I've signed up for Margie Lawson's "Deep Editing" on line course this month?
Well, she's posted the first lecture and it's amazing stuff!
If you're interested in doing the course, you can still register.
What with finishing THE DATING DILEMMA, doing the synopsis for my next Modern Heat (and getting both off to my lovely ed by the end of next week if possible!), the online course and co-hosting over at CataUni, my writing days (well, nights actually) are full.
So much for winding down this weekend ;)

Fantastic news. Congratulations!

Sounds like you've got your hands full! I have to give you a big thank you for taking the time to drop by my blog as part of the CataUni venture - it was a pleasant and very welcome surprise.

Enjoy Margie Lawson's course. I did one of her courses at the beginning of the year and my writing has advanced in leaps and bounds because of it.
