Amazon Breakout Novel Award!

Okay, I promise, an update regarding the editor interest in my cozy mystery series will be coming soon. By the end of the month, I hope. Nothing has been finalized yet.

IN THE MEANTIME.......

I just found out my romantic comedy DESTINY WEARS SPURS? is a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakout Novel Award!

And now the Publishers Weekly reviews are in. I had no idea we were getting a PW review. That is so cool. So if any of you would like to support me, here's what you do.

Go to www.amazon.com/dp/B00121WE0K

And post a review of DESTINY WEARS SPURS.

You have until March 2nd and then Penguin Putnam will choose the top 10 finalists based on PW reviews and the public. Thanks in advance. This is so exciting. It's like karma. I've been doing this for so long, never gave up, always stayed positive (no matter how frustrating this business is), and now walla. Good things are finally coming my way in 2008!

Thanks for hanging with me, folks.

Karitown out;))

Aw thanks, guys. I'm sorry I haven't been blogging as much, but I've really been focusing on my writing and being more productive. I hope once I have a routine down and a few things finalized, I will be able to get back to blogger land. Don't know how all you people keep up;))
