RITA NOMINATION

I am so excited I can hardly think. Please celebrate with me. A TOUCH OF GRACE, book 2 in my Brothers' Bond series has been nominated for a RITA, the romance writers' 'academy award'.

After an eye appointment today, I was driving home when my cell phone rang. Thinking it was my husband reminding me to pick up some milk or something, I nearly fainted when the caller identified herself and said she was calling from Romance Writers of America. She said, "How are you today?" I replied, "I think I just got a whole lot better!" Then she went on to congratulate me as a finalist. I'm sure she thought I was an idiot. I alternately laughed, squealed, and asked if she was joking.

This is my first RITA final so I am extremely thrilled. Obviously. :-)

Cheers!
Linda Goodnight

I'm thrilled for you, too, Linda! And excited! And happy! And a whole lot of other things!

Enjoy this moment and know that all of us "Belles" who show up in San Francisco for the RWA Conference will celebrate with you.

And this is your first nomination??? Wow, I'm stunned about that since you are so talented, but this just makes it much sweeter!

Linda,
This is the greatest news! Your books and your characters touch the heart and speak to readers, so I'm totally not surprised that you're a finalist. The cream does rise to the top, after all.

Lifting my cup of coffee to you in a toast (I so love when things like this happen to people I like. I'm absolutely teary-eyed with joy).

Congratulations, Linda. You are one truly talented writer!
