2 days until the Golden Heart/Rita awards!

2 jpgWhat a wonderful (and full) pre-conference day yesterday!

I met the rest of my Contemporary Single Title Golden Heart group – minus Katie Graykowski, who didn’t come to the conference. What a wonderful group of women! (We miss Katie; wish she could have come!)

More of our larger group of Golden Heart finalists came to yesterday’s workshop, so we got to meet them, as well as get to know each other better. I will admit to the bond being stronger than I had anticipated – a good thing! A very good thing!

Today is full of workshops and meetings with agents and an editor. In fact, I need to go so I can (finally!) get to the schedule and plan out the day. If my phone works, I’ll post to Twitter again today…

    Good Morning Leslie,

    Sounds like a fantastic gathering. Will keep you in mind at Mass. The agents will be fighting over you.

    My letter to the editor was published. it’s time to write another.

    God Bless,

    Is there a link to your letter, Don? I’ve never done that; it must be exciting to see it in print – and I bet it generates lots of discussion in places you go for the next few days!

    Thanks for your prayers. 🙂

      Thanks Leslie,

      I’ll send you a copy of the letter. Doesn’t your work appear in the Diocesan newspaper all the time?

      Be sure to eat a god breakfast. You will be very busy with those agents.

      God Bless,

        Yes, but The Criterion usually prints nonfiction articles (not my forte, but great exercise!). I’ve never sent a letter to the editor; I was surprised when they printed my most recent offering on the Opinions page. I didn’t expect that. I thought it was more of an inspirational piece. I’ve never written a letter to the editor with the intent to influence public opinion!!!

        And whether I eat a good breakfast or a god breakfast, I will take care of myself today! 😉

        Good Morning Leslie!!!!!!!!!!


        I’m excited along with you.

        How many publishers have inquired about your two manuscripts? They’d best get in on the ground floor before you sign a multi-novel contract with someone else.

        Hope you send some pictures of you with the Golden Heart.

        Will think of you at Mass.

        God Bless,
