A couple of weeks ago I put down my jig saw and answered the phone (yes, I answered it, surprisingly) only to find out my book, Mad for the Marquess, is a finalist in the Romance Writers of America RITA awards! For those of you who don’t know, the RITA is the Oscars of the romance writers world. Below are my fellow nominees. These gals are some heavy hitters and I am so thrilled to be included with these ladies!

The awards will be given out on July 19th at a black tie ceremony, so, I’ll need a gown!
The question is, do I recycle something I already have? Or should I make something new??
Over the next few weeks I will be exploring some options and asking you all to weigh in on some frocks.
I also would love to show you the OTHER thing that has been consuming my life, my Lipstick on a Pig Project. I am nearly finished (sort of). That will come in the next weeks as well.
To celebrate I am putting my book on sale! The ebook is 99 cents! So, if you haven’t picked up Mad for the Marquess, please consider buying an ebook, or splurging on the hard copy! And please check out my competition! They are all fabulous!
