I got the call!!!!

Butterfly Swords is a finalist in the Historical Romance category for the Golden Heart©!

At 7:59 am I checked the clock and at 8:00am the phone rang! It was Terri Brisbin from RWA telling me that Butterfly Swords had finalled.  I literally sank to the floor.

More later, for now — I bask!

    Thank you Kate! I’ll be channeling the positive vibes from L.A. to St. Louis. I’m trying to get my husband to come out and hold my hand. I’m going to need it!

    Thank you for all the support. I’ve spent so much time and effort on this manuscript. This is huge for me. I’m still surprised that a historical in such an unusual setting would final — it gives me hope!

    I know as an avid reader of historical fiction, I’m always looking for a compelling story and setting. I’m actually more drawn to stories with more unique and exotic settings too.
