The Pink Heart Society has reported the wonderful news that my critque partner, Donna Alward won the Bookseller's Best Traditional Romance Category with Hired by the Cowboy. The PHS also has photos of the prize.
Regular readers of this blog will know that this is the book that I convinced Donna to totally rewrite after she received a form rejection. She had orginally set the book in London, rather than setting it in Canada among other things. In between getting the rejection, and rewriting it, she wrote several other books. But the characters would not go away. They kept calling to her.
When she did rewrite, it was a total rewrite. And it became a very lovely book.
I am so very proud to have played a tiny role in Donna's success!!!
As luck would have it, she is away at a family wedding.
