Fireflies in December received the Christy Award for First Novel Saturday evening in St. Louis... and yes, I'm still absorbing it!

The dessert reception, keynoted by Lisa Samson, was a wonderful evening filled with incredibly talented writers. I'm still coming down to earth, but I'll post more details when I do!

I'm so happy for you. I had a slight panic attack when I realized I wasn't sure where my copy was and was thinking surely I did not accidentally give it away. Whew! Found it! LOL!

Congratulations! I just read this a week or two ago (June 25th according to the Nook) and I just finished reading Cottonwood Whispers (just now!). I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. (There's my friend Michelle who recommended this book to me!)

Thank you, ladies!! It's been a ton of fun, of course, and I think it's finally sunk in... maybe!

I'm so grateful to all of you for your support of my books!
