I can say I’m an Award Winning Author

My critique partners and I drove from Western NY to Salem, MA this morning, a gorgeous drive with great company. The NECRWA conference started on a great note, I attended Jen Talty’s workshop on Conference Guide and Pitches Friday night. Fantastic stuff. Really got me thinking again about where I really want my writing career to be in the next five years. As well as helping me relax about giving the my pitch I have scheduled with Lori Perkins tomorrow. 

But the best part of the night is the announcement that I won the novella category with Painted with Pleasures. It’s now an award winning novel.This is my debut novel. The first to be published and I won the Bean Pot Contest. I so did not see this coming and I’m beyond thrilled. As they announced the 3rd, and 2nd winners, I looked at my CP completely stunned. I think I even asked. Is that mine? Really. I won.

So thank you, everyone who has supported me through all my writing trials!   And thank you Rita Oberlies and Jen Talty for celebrating this award with me. We rocked those Tiaras!
