2016 Maggie Awards

Finalist PNR pubI’d been so busy prepping for the release of A Secret Rose that this
is first opportunity I’ve had to write up a blog post about the Maggie
Awards. As I said previously on social media, Blood Surfer has finaled in the Maggies in the Paranormal/Fantasy category. I’m beside myself with incredulity. When I first started submitting Blood Surfer to all of these contests, I figured I was a long shot no matter which contest it was. Yet, here I am with 3 contest finals under my belt. No wins – not yet. I won’t know if I win until later this year, but finaling is just as good.

2016 Prism Award

PRISM 2016 Finalist

I’m pleased to announce not one, but two contest finals! I received two emails from the RWA’s Fantasy, Futuristic, & Paranormal chapter announcing that BLOOD SURFER has finaled in two categories: Dark Paranormal and Best First Book. I couldn’t be happier! I only regret I cannot make it to San Diego this year for RWA’s Annual Conference when the winners are announced. Congratulations to all of the finalists! I’ll be adding your books to my reading list.

2016 Bestsellers’ Best Award


I received a lovely email from the RWA’s Greater Detroit chapter announcing that BLOOD SURFER finaled in their 2016 Bestsellers’ Best Award. What a wonderful way to celebrate Friday the 13th, wouldn’t you say? Of course, this book didn’t come together on it’s own, which is why my editor, Debra Doyle is also honored by the chapter. Unfortunately, I can’t make the awards ceremony in San Diego in July, but I will be there in spirit and I look forward to reading all of the winners later this year.

Book Obsessed Babes Recap

This blog post sort of got buried under all of the activity surrounding the release of Still Life. With Still Life in the wild, I can talk about what a wonderful time I had at this event. Though only one day, if you don’t count the author reception the night before, I met so many passionate authors and readers I can’t even count the number on my fingers and toes.

My My roommate for the event, Charlee Allden, was there to show off her books: Deadly Lover and Stealing Mercury.

I shared a table with historical romance author, Madeline Martin (who showed me the proper way to eat avocados – I now keep avocados in my fridge for snacking). She’s the author of Scottish historical romances such as Enchantment of a Highlander.

Marie Long seems to be following me from event to event. This was what? the fourth event we’ve had together? She writes the contemporary, new adult books Scarred, Scratched, and Scorned.

And then there was Abigail Sharpe. Abigail was a volunteer at the event and not there to sell her books (not that this should stop you from buying Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy or Who Wants to Marry a Doctor). Instead of standing in the corner and waiting for me to flag her down and beg for a glass of water, she picked up a stack of Blood Surfers and handed them out to everyone who crossed her path (I was giving my books away for free this weekend). Seriously, Abigail knows how to sell. Don’t get in her way, don’t try and stop her.
