The Heart2Heart contest is held every year by the lovelies at SFA Romance Writers of America. The contest has several different categories for unpublished authors to compete in, historical only being one. It was a huge honor just to final in the contest (along with one of my critique partners Robin Delaney- how fun is THAT?!) and to win feels amazing.
People keep asking me what I won, haha! Umm. Bragging rights? Confidence? Validation? Yes. All of it!
It's a heady feeling, a contest win. Enough to send my tiptoeing to the edge of contest-whoredom, but I decided to just take my win and be happy. I don't need ten wins or finals. I got exactly what I wanted: a good feeling and some great feedback from the judges.
I'm now working on polishing a Regency romance novella, which should come out in the next two weeks. (Crossing my fingers!) I am also revising the full book length Regency romance, Bad Intentions, that won the Heart2Heart. They only saw one chapter, thankfully, because...it still needs some work. I hope to finish that soon and get it out the door, on its way to agents and editors!
I have several other projects in the works and many, many ideas lined up in my mental queue. I'm just not happy if I don't have at least three projects going at once, although it makes it hard to keep everyone's names straight sometimes!
So, that's what's up with me. Drop by Lady Scribes sometime and say Hello, okay? ;D
