Woo Hoo, Kate!!!



Well, happy to note that for whatever reason, Blogger has decided to allow me to post a picture!!

The photo on the left was taken at RWA's national conference in Georgia, this past July. That's Christine Rimmer, Kate Carlisle, me and Susan Mallery, all decked out for the gala awards night!

And this blog is about Kate! Over on our team blog, Deadline Diaries, Kate is our Unpublished Princess, so close to making that first sale, we can all taste it!

At the RWA conference, Kate won the Golden Heart Award (think Oscar for unpublished romance writers) for her novel, SNOOPING IN STILETTOS. Well, today her life just got even more exciting!

She's now a finalist in the American Title competition, sponsored by Romantic Times Magazine and Dorchester publishing. It's sort of an American Idol type of contest. Every month, snippets of the finalists' books are published in the magazine and everyone votes!! Two writers are eliminated every month until the last book is standing and then the winner is published by Dorchester!

So as soon as I have the website link for the voting process, I'll be posting it often, hoping you'll all go and vote for Kate's book! And if you'd like to read a little something on her nominated book, THE KAMA SUTRA CHRONICLES, go to Kate's website you can read an excerpt of this very funny, sexy book!

Until then, WAY TO GO, KATE!!!!!

    Yay, Kate!

    And really, I shouldn't have worn that schmatah (sp?) But it sure was comfy. And what a great time we had... And Kate, you look gorgeous. As always.
