Golden Heart

I'm breaking my Lenten Internet Fast and making an unprecedented Thursday post to say....


Sweet Enemy is a 2010 finalist in the Regency Historical category.

For those of you who may not know, the Romance Writer's of America's Golden Heart ® is the most prestigious contest out there for unpublished romance authors, with about 1200 entrants per year. Find out more at:

RWA Golden Heart Finalists 2010

I'm still in the clouds here, so I don't have much to say yet. I just wanted shout it to the blogosphere!

My congratulations to all of the other finalists, particularly my Critique Partner, Leigh Stites, writing as Elisabeth Burke, for her final, The Healer, in the Historical Category.

And I wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to my awesome critique groups, without whom, this wouldn't have been possible: Katy Madison, Keri Smith, Leigh Stites, Fran Abram, Gretchen Jones and Stacey Long.

And thanks to the supportive writers in my local chapters who read my entry and helped me polish it up...MARA and rock!!!

I'll be back after Easter with more, but I couldn't resist stopping in! I'm sure God will forgive me :)



  1. Heather, you rock! I saw the GH posting and had to add my congrats! I'll be in the audience rooting for you in Nashville, and for a big NY sale to follow!
