2013 Golden Heart® Finalists announced

Last year at this time, I sat shell-shocked in my mother-in-law’s kitchen when I first heard that my manuscript was a finalist in the RWA’s prestigious Golden Heart® contest. This year, many of my fellow 2012 finalists have done it again. AGAIN, I say! I’m so impressed with the caliber of writing among the finalists, and ever-amazed and appreciative of the camaraderie that grows within the group in the few months between announcement of the finalists and the RWA’s annual summer conference. What an amazing bunch of writers. Check out this year’s GH finalists, as well as the nominees for the RITA Award.
