OMG - I'm a finalist!

I had something else prepared for this week's Writing Wednesday - but hey - who can beat something THIS good? I finaled in the historical category of the Stroke of Midnight contest with my manuscript, Seeking Truth. SOM is a contest for erotic romance sponsored by the Passionate Ink chapter of RWA.

I was fortunate last year to final in the SOM and place third in the paranormal category with Crime of Passion. This year, different story...different category...same thrill! Wherever I finish I'll be happy, but I have my fingers crossed for a win. We'll see.

Congrats to everyone else who finaled in either the Passionate Plume or the Stroke of Midnight contests.
