Today’s The Day!

Calls are going out to Romance Writers of America’s RITA and Golden Heart finalists today!

The RITA and Golden Heart awards are the “Oscars” of the Romance industry: RITAs for published authors; Golden Hearts for unpublished.

Sometimes we even get an agent or two to stop by! As an added bonus, two lucky commenters will win a signed set of my Mer trilogy: In Over Her Head, Wild Blue Under, and Catch of a Lifetime.
