Golden Heart and RITA finalists

I am so proud to announce that three of my friends are finalists.

Helen Scott-Taylor, my dear critique partner, finaled in Paranormal with THE MAGIC KNOT. The same book with which she finaled in the Romantic Times American Title IV.

Congratulations, Helen. THE MAGIC KNOT is definitely a winner.

Beth Trissel is a finalist in Historicals, with THROUGH THE FIRE.

I have know Beth for almost a year as a co-member of the the Pink Fuzzy Slippers blog, where I regularly post.

Congratulations, Beth.

And now drums roll please:

Terri Garey, is a double finalist in the RITA for Paranormal and Best First Book, with her hilarious Avon book DEAD GIRLS ARE EASY. .

I have known Terri for five years through the FTHRW and a smaller loop the Playground. Terri created the very successful blog of Writer At Play.
