Maven Darcy is a Golden Heart Finalist!

I'm thrilled to share that Glorious is a finalist in the Regency Historical category of the Golden Heart!! I'm just starting to calm down, but wow was that phone call a rush! Mr. Burke listened in and was/is over the moon. He keeps congratulating me. And the Burkettes wanted to know what was wrong after I shrieked (that was after I hung up the phone). Quinn is excited that I'm going to wear a pretty dress. Off to register for the RWA Conference - see you in San Francisco!!
