Each year in March, when the Golden Heart finalists are announced, the finalists organise themselves an email group, and often form a strong group of friends, long before the winners are announced at the Romance Writers of America conference in July. The year I finalled – 2007 – was no exception. My fellow finalists are a fantastic, wonderful and supportive group of writers, and it’s been great to meet many of them at Dallas and San Francisco, but also to be in regular contact as we negotiate the writing and publishing life. Many of the group are now published, and I’ve got some great books sitting in my TBR pile that I’m looking forward to getting to, now that my uni job is almost over, and Dark Country proof pages are in. (Since I’m not going to the RWAmerica conference this year, I’m planning to read my fellow finalists books in July, and feel ‘in touch’ that way!)
Since we finalled in 2007, we’ve had a bit of fun playing with the 007 theme. We’ve also been planning to establish a group blog – and I’m proud and delighted that this week, our blog has launched. So please hop on over and visit us at: Nobody Writes it Better.
There’s quite a few of us involved, writing a range of romance genres, and as it’s aimed predominantly at readers, there will be giveaways and interesting posts. I’ll be contributing posts every six weeks or so.
