Today I was informed my unpublished romantic suspense, Desolation (now Falling for Her Traitor), placed first in both the Romantic Suspense category and the GRAND PRIZE of the Utah RWA Heart of the West contest! You can see the official announcement here.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for my readers to get hold of this book. It’s hands down the best and most thrilling book I’ve written to date. And the judge for the category, Jill Marsal of the Marsal Lyon Agency, thought so too!
Thank you, judges. Thank you, readers. Couldn’t have done it without you.
I didn’t really intend to submit this book into any contests, but I’d been researching my local chapter and the dates just happened to line up. The fee for the contest is low as well and with such high-profile judges, I thought, “What the hell,” and sent it out. It’s so humbling to know readers believe in my work and I can’t wait to get this book in shape for release.
