WOW! Can you hear me screaming yet? I've had to keep quiet about some amazing news until it was publicly announced...so here it finally is:
RT BOOK REVIEWS announced on its blog today that my manuscript, "Seducing Charlotte," is one of 10 finalists in the Writing With the Stars contest sponsored by RT and Kensington’s Brava imprint.
There will be five rounds of competition. The aspiring authors are paired with Brava authors who will serve as mentors, kind of a "Dancing with the Stars" concept for unpublished writers. We get to work with our mentors and they help us spruce up our entries to make them as strong as possible.
Receiving the phone call from Kensington Associate Editor Megan Records was a surreal experience. I couldn't quite feel my excitement because I couldn't feel anything at all! She was so nice and patient with all of my distracted questions.
I've got some intense competition. Good luck to all of us!
The winning author's manuscript will be published by Kensington.
