My good friends Laurie and Sharon are both finalists in the 2011 RWA Golden Heart and Rita awards. This is a tremendous achievement. Laurie actually has two novels in the paranormal-sci fi category. Sharon has just landed a two book deal with Tor and this year was her last time of being eligible for the RWA award.
I have to admit to my ignorance here about RWA etc. I'm not a member so I don't quite understand all that's been going on but I do know my friends are thrilled to pieces. It's especially great for Laurie who's been going through a bit of self-doubt.
You go girls!!!!
