2nd Place - Heart to Heart Contest

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

My manuscript, "Seducing Charlotte," just took second place in the 2010 Heart to Heart contest sponsored by the San Francisco Area Romance Writers of America. For a better look at the certificate, just click on the image.

By the way, I would highly recommend this contest because it was very well organized and coordinator Bettina Clairmont kept contestants informed as to the progress of the judging and of any delays. And the final judges were an impressive group of industry professionals.

In the historical category, they included Avon Editor Amanda Bergeron,  Barbara Poelle of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency and e-publisher Jessica Schulte, Carina Press. I placed second overall but Avon's Amanda Bergeron ranked my entry first. So that's pretty reaffirming!

"Seducing Charlotte" is also a finalist in Kensington Brava's Writing With the Stars contest. The grand prize is a publishing contract. Check it out and please consider VOTING for me! Click here now to read more.

If the first paragraph intrigues you, here's the FIRST CHAPTER. To learn more about the plots of both of my manuscripts, CLICK HERE.
