Contest Squee!

Maven Darcy BurkeI just learned last night that Glorious finaled in the 2007 Maggie Contest (Georgia Romance Writers). I am so thrilled! I am considering attending GRW's Moonlight and Magnolias Conference at the end of September. I hadn't planned on going because it's my husband's birthday, but he's the one who suggested I go. Anyone else going?

Thanks Lacey, Erica, B.E., and Jill! Jill, I'm not sure if you've been here before, but thanks for dropping by. Check out Jill's blog, The Scriber's Muse.

SQUEEE!! Finaling in anything is awesome, but the Maggie is particularly well-respected, isn't it? Yay!

lacey kaye said...

Yep, the Maggie is nothing to snicker at!

Jacqueline Barbour said...

Mega-squee!

And, as for the conference, I say: Go Darcy, it's your (husband's) birthday. LOL!

Diana Peterfreund said...

Darcy, you must go. I finalled in the maggies in 2004, and there is NOTHING that beats the moment they announced my name as the winner and I got to go up there and get my award...

Shelley Munro said...

Congratulations! I'd definitely go :-)

India Carolina said...

Squee! Congrats Darcy!!!!! I wasn't planning on going, but they tell me the finalists get a discounted registration. And Twist finaled in the Single Title Category. Have you decided to go? I'm mulling it over. I'd love to see you take home that medallion!

lacey kaye said...

Yay, India!!!

Isabel said...

Congrats, Darcy! ((hugs)))

Darcy Burke said...

India, major congrats!! Yay!!! So excited for you!!! Yes I'm going, so come with me!! Email me at darcy at fibersphere dot net.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and offering your congrats. I've decided to go to Atlanta - I just can't pass up the experience (especially after what Diana said!). I really appreciate everyone's support!!

Isabel said...

Congratulations, India!

India Carolina said...

OMG. How sweet for people to congratulate me on Your blog. Thanks guys.

Darcy, I'm so up for it. Have to check with that pesky day job. I emailed you.
Yay for Glorious!

Go Darcy! Go India!

(Seriously... go, and get your red carpet on. Sounds like a blast!)

Super Congrats on finaling. That's my chapter and I'll be at M&M with bells on.

Bill Clark said...

Belated congrats to Maven Darcy and India!

Darcy, does the DH get to come? It being his birthday and all? (If it were me, wild horses couldn't keep me away!)

Darcy Burke said...

Beverley, India and I are coming to Atlanta, so we'll see you there!

Bill, DH would love to come, but we have two little kids who will be in school. I do believe he'll be joining me in San Francisco next summer for at least part of the National conference. I'm very lucky to have such a supportive guy. :-)

lacey kaye said...

Mr. Burke is seriously awesome.

Liane Gentry Skye said...

That's fabulous news. Good grief, I have a character in a WIP named Darcy Ray Burke. Think I was chaneling you? Of course, now I'm going to HAVE to hunt down your work. ;c)

Santa said...
