I received an email last night with a list of the 2010 Heart to Heart finalists and my name is on it!
My manuscript, "Seducing Charlotte," is nominated in the Historical category.
The contest is sponsored by the San Francisco chapter of the Romance Writers of America. I had to submit, "that magical scene in which your hero and heroine meet for the first time." Submissions could run a maximum of 15 pages.
It's very exciting because the final round has an excellent set of judges for the Historical category. They include both a print editor and an ePub editor as well as an agent.
Agent: Barbara Poelle, Irene Goodman Literary Agency
Print Editor: Amanda Bergeron, Avon
ePub Editor: Jessica Schulte, Carina Press
Final round winners will be announced on September 30.
