Good News All Around

IN THE NEWS: "MOLINO, Fla. — An elementary school teacher retiring after a 36-year career died of a heart attack moments after saying goodbye to her final class for the summer." Read more HERE.

Well, unlike that awful news in the story above, I've actually been hearing good things all around me. Such nice news brings joy to my little writing life, so I'll share some of it.

First off, my good friend and crit partner, Chelle Sandell has just learned she has finaled in The Magnolia State Romance Writers Chapter of RWA 12th Annual Dixie First Chapter Contest in the contemporary category! Woo-hoo! Go, Chelle!

Second, my good friend and crit partner, Debra Dennis has a new release this week with Blade Publishing, called The Kandy Shoppe. It's been getting GREAT reviews! Woo-hoo! Go, Deb!

Third, my friend and crit partner Theresa Stillwagon has just sold a book to The Wild Rose Press.

Fourth, I've been getting some pretty nifty reviews for my recent book, too. The Literary Nymphs Reviews recently read The Role of a Lifetime. You can check out the review HERE.

All in all, not too shabby.

What about you? Any good news this week?

Congrats to all! I'm going to read your review now.

My good news is small, but you know I desperately needed some. I won two contests - a $15.00 Amazon gift certificate from author Dee Savoy and a hardcover copy of Eric Jerome Dickey's new book, PLEASURE. Yay!!!

Yay for good reviews! I'm so proud of you!

Good news? Here? You've been reading my blog, right? I'll let you know after my gallbladder doc appointment today. So far, nothing this week except the fact I'm still alive and breathing!
