Viva la RITA! (Colleen's Triple X is short-listed!)



Can I get a "wooot!"? (Or better yet, a "hoot!"?)

Colleen's Triple Exposure was nominated (along with approximately 1200 other novels) for the RWA's highest honor -- the RITA Award, and today she got the word that she's a finalist in the Best Romantic Suspense category.

Winners will be announced at a red carpet event during RWA's National Conference in July. Till then, we must raise the cone of power...

All together now...

Gofightwin, Colleen!

Update: Here's the full list of noms.

I know it's a cliche to say it's an honor to be nominated, but seriously -- to be in the top eight out of several hundred of nominees? An amazing accomplishment making it to the front of the pack. Congrats again, Colleen!

Thanks so much, Joni! I'm jazzed about this nomination, and very excited to be in such talented company in my category!

And actually, it's even better than that. She was nominated AMONG 1200 novels. Only about 70 or so are chosen each year to be nominated, and that makes her among the cream of the crop. Like we didn't already know that!

"She was nominated AMONG 1200 novels."

Oops, I meant "She was nominated FROM among 1200 novels." Shoulda checked my work. :-)

Congratulations on the nomination for Triple Explosure. Have you come down off your cloud yet?
So nice to hear from so many of you! Thanks so much for the kind words, Merrimon (you should be getting an ARC of Beneath Bone Lake anytime now), Crystal, Judy, and Danelle.

And I pretty much live with my head in the clouds, Danielle. The only difference is the elevation! :)
