This is the news I’ve been sitting on, but now I can finally announce: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is a finalist of the Linda Howard Award of Excellence in the Single Title category. This award is sponsored by the Birmingham Chapter of RWA. Final placement will be announced in July. I’m especially excited about the final round judge for this category, Alicia Condon, editor at Kensington Publishing. Wish me luck!
(For those of you keeping track at home, this is final #5 for this book.)
You guys may get tired of hearing this, but I never get tired of saying it: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not has finaled in another contest! This one is the Fool For Love contest, sponsored by the Virginia Romance Writers. The category is long contemporary and the final results will be announced in mid-June. Wish me luck!
I’m sitting on one more piece of similar news…will reveal when I can.
He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is on fire! It’s now also a finalist in the Fab Five contest in the Single Title Romance category – its third award this year. This one is sponsored by the Wisconsin chapter of RWA. As with the Cleveland Rocks contest, final placement will be announced in June. I’m very excited about the agents and editors who will see it for both contests.
To celebrate Jen coming on board as my agent, I’m giving away a brand new copy of the 2013 Guide to Literary Agents. In addition to listing over 1,000 agents by name and genre (mostly U.S. agents, I believe), this book also contains valuable information on querying, what to expect from an agent and how to write the dreaded synopsis.
If you’re interested in entering the random drawing, please leave a comment below, including your email address so I can contact you if you win. This contest will be open for one week. I’ll draw the winning name on Sunday, January 27, and will post the winner here, as well as notify that person via email. Good luck and thanks for all of your support!
PS – Please share this with anyone you think might be interested. The more, the merrier!
