So last week was pretty darn great. It started off with news that I was a double finalist in the novella category of the Book Buyers Best Contest for my books WORTH THE RISK and YOURS AT MIDNIGHT. Squee!! I am super happy and so honored to be included on a list with so many authors I admire in all the different categories.

Then I received this from Elena. Elena is a reader who won one of my bridesmaid gift boxes during my Kissing the Maid of Honor blog tour. She lives in Greece. (I have a fan in Greece! Squee again!) It’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever received and I LOVE it so much! Isn’t it awesome? She was so sweet and thoughtful to do this for me! I’m going to cherish it always!

I was also at the RWA conference in Atlanta last week. It rocked! I had a wonderful time attending workshops, eating, drinking, visiting with friends, making new friends, eating, talking until the wee hours of the night with my roommate, eating, crying during the luncheon speeches – Kristen Higgins and Cathy Maxwell were amazing! – and did I mention the eating? Here’s my favorite dessert, which I did not eat alone, although I probably could have, it was so yummy!

I am so very grateful.

      Hi Elena! It was so yummy! The little bits of chocolate bar and the cinnamon crisps were the best part. I can’t wait for you to read Shane’s book! I’m so crushing on him and hope readers will, too! Thanks so much for stopping by! <3

      Hi Shari! Thank you so much! And thanks for being such a great pal and always being here to share in my news and posts – it means the world to me! And guess what? I found out last night that Yours At Midnight finaled in another contest! :D I’m two for two! Think I’ll enter a few more contests in the coming months – this time with Kissing the Maid of Honor, also.
