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...
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!
