This past Friday, RWA Board members placed their annual calls to the finalists for their prestigious RITA® and Golden Heart® Awards.
I was incredibly surprised and humbled to receive an early morning call that ALTERED was a RITA® finalist for BEST FIRST BOOK!
I couldn’t be more excited or pleased about this honor. Thank you to the judges who read and enjoyed the book. Thank you to Candace Havens, my amazing editor. The book is what it is because of her hard work. Also, a huge amount of thanks to my agent, Helen Breitwieser, for believing in the book and in me.
Congratulations to all of my fellow finalists, both in the RITA and the Golden Heart!
