Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence Finalist!

Great news! One Tough Marine, my Harlequin Intrigue from August 2010, has made the finals of the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence contest, in the Romantic Suspense category!

This is my first contest final since becoming published. I've entered the Ritas for three years, and the Daphne's and the Gayle Wilson contest twice, but this is my first final. and since it's probably my favorite book of the Cooper Justice series so far, I'm doubly pleased.

The list of finalists should be up on the Southern Magic website in a few days. Be sure to check out the list of great writers who made the finals with me!

Thanks, Linda! I'm really happy about finaling. I'm up against one of my favorite writers--Brenda Novak--and a fellow 2004 Golden Heart finalist, Gail Barrett, who's great. And the other two authors are also award-winners from way back. Tough competition, and I'm just very flattered to be among them.
