Results are Trickling In

Today is the Big Day in romance publishing, the day finalists in the RITA (published book) and Golden Heart (unpublished manuscript) contests are announced. There are dozens of contests held throughout the year, but these two are the elite in romance.
One dedicated member is keeping of the results. Already three of my friends have heard they finaled. Mary Fechter I was expecting. I didn't know Trish Milburn (double finalist!) and Cindy Procter-King had entered, so it was exciting to see them final, too. And Allison Brennan, a woman I respect mightily, has finaled in the Rita. I'm eagerly refreshing the unofficial report every ten minutes to see who else I might know. :)

Big congratulations to ALL the finalists, including the ones I'm not friends with. May the joy of this day last you through July.

And I'm excited to be showing up on other people's Google Alerts! LOL

You deserve it, Cindy, you've been working hard for a long time. :)

Thanks, Natalie. It was a fun day -- both getting the call and being able to call finalists to give them the good news.
