I’m so happy that the first romance I’ve written was selected as a finalist for the Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense.
Weeks after entering I received a phone call. I was a finalist! That was the best feeling. I hadn’t received much feedback on my writing at that point and to find out I was a finalist. I was so excited!
Each year, there is an award ceremony for the Daphne competition held during the RWA conference. All of the finalists find out if they placed in their category. I was not able to go to the RWA conference to attend the awards ceremony for this award. Fortunately, they live streamed the event and I was able to watch and listen from my home.
I am happy to announce I placed third in my category, Unpublished Category (Series) Romantic Mystery/Suspense!
