My BFF Linda Howard called me this morning *G* (okay, she's on the RWA Board of Directors, and that's why she called) to notify me that A CHRISTMAS DAY FAMILY from A Western Winter Wonderland anthology is a RITA finalist! This is big news in the writer's world, and the emails are already coming in.
This is my third time as a finalist, and it would sure be nice to bring home the gold. I have a spot and a visual affirmation prepared above my desk. See it here?
