What is it about this book? SOJOURN is a finalist for a Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense in the Paranormal division. The Daphnes, as they're called, are offered by the Kiss of Death Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. It's a chapter of "murderously-inclined romantics" who know how to write good books and have fun at the same time.
I've finaled twice before in the Daphnes (named after Dame Daphne du Maurier) and won Honorable Mentions both times. Since those were self-published books, I was quite tickled with that as I was competing against NY-pubbed authors. I'm hoping SOJOURN proves strong enough to take first place this time.
The awards ceremony is at the Death by Chocolate Party (everything chocolate you could possibly think of) at the annual romance writers conference. Yummmm...
And now back to the packing. I'm off to Dallas tomorrow for A-Kon and the Writers' Workshop. I can't wait!
