Celebrating with my Critique Partners

I have two talented critique partners on my Dream Team, and good things have been happening to them. I’m beyond thrilled for Anne and Jody.

As I announced last week, Anne Barton won the Golden Heart. Since then she sold that GH winning story in a two-book deal! To hear about Anne’s First Sale and join the party, I invite you to visit her blog.

On Tuesday July 12, the American Christian Fiction Writers announced the finalists for their prestigious 2011 Carol Awards for published authors. My other CP, Jody Hedlund, is a finalist in the Debut Author category for her debut novel, The Preacher’s Bride.

I’ve been doing so much happy dancing recently that I’m downright light-headed. 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing? I was so happy for Anne and now for Jody! Her book is such a good debut – I hope she wins that category!
    Oh, and CJ Chase’s debut book is now for sale on Harlequin’s Love Inspired Historicals with a gorgeous cover (along with Christine Johnson’s next book!).
    So much good news lately!!

  • Wow, Keli, what a huge week!!! So much to celebrate. Just make sure you sit down before you pass out from all that happy dancing. 🙂
