Back on March 26th, I received a frantic phone call from my good friend and author, Denny S. Bryce. I already knew why she was calling, because I had just read the news.
Denny is a finalist for Romance Writers of America‘s Golden Heart® Awards for (as yet) unpublished authors. Her romantic suspense novel, Chasing Damn, has been on my to-read list for a couple of years. She’s been gently massaging what was already a great manuscript, into an even better one. The hard work has paid off, and she is now in an elite group. It’s inspiring!
Each year, the GH finalists form a sort of club with awesome names like the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood (2009) and The Firebirds (2012). When the class of 2014 decided upon the name Dream Weavers, Denny asked if I could find a little time to design a logo for them, one that could be used for their pin as well.
This is the result:
Not bad, eh? I may not be a Golden Heart finalist – yet – but I may be someday. I already have an idea for a name and a pin for that group, whenever it happens. Now all I need to do is polish up a manuscript and apply for admission to the class of 2015. Because, you know, actually entering the contest will greatly increase my chances of making it.
Best of luck to all of the Dream Weavers. I’ll be cheering you on from the audience, though maybe a little louder for Denny.
I never said I didn’t play favourites. 😉
