Congrats to Elizabeth Donald!

Good friend and fellow writer Elizabeth Donald was honored with the Darrell Award for her short story "Wonderland" at this year's Mid-South Convention in Memphis, TN.
"Wonderland" comes from her short story collection, Setting Suns published by New Babel Books.

Congratulations, Elizabeth!

Congrats to Jeri Smith-Ready!

Recently, I had Jeri Smith-Ready's book, Eyes of Crow recommended to me by a friend and fan of my work. I confess that I haven't gotten to read it yet, but I have it on order from Amazon and am eagerly anticipating it.
Imagine my surprise that this debut novel of hers has shown up as a RITA finalist for Best First Novel! (the RITA Award is the big award for Romance writing and is given out annually by the Romance Writers of America in a variety of categories.)

I have some more congratulations to give out for another friend and another award, but that deserves a post all its own!
