The day just got a whole lot brighter….
Today is the day when the RWA committee for the RITAs starts calling around to tell authors if they have made the finalist list. In the romance section of the blog-o-sphere, there’s a lot of quite pensive sounding waiting going on. Well, the calls are starting to roll in and I am thrilled to announce that my client Shelley Bates is a finalist in the inspirational category for her book Pocketful of Pearls. I am especially chuffed about this as she was nominated and won(!!!) in the same category last year for the previous book in the series, Grounds to Believe. So, this is a wonderful recognition of her contribution to the genre. The full list hasn’t been released as yet, so I don’t know what her competition might be, or if there’s even more to come. I am so thrilled for her, though, and plan on celebrating with her at the convention.
