Colleen Thompson a RITA nominee!


I'm thrilled to announce that my good friend and critique partner, Colleen Thompson, has nabbed a nomination in the Best 2009 Romantic Suspense category of the Romance Writers of America RITA awards for her book Triple Exposure!

Go, Colleen! If you'll remember, last month Colleen was a guest on IMHO telling us what romance means to her. Several other chapter mates from West Houston RWA have snagged awards as well. If you are interested in seeing the whole list, go here.

Congratulations, all!

Stacey, look forward to reading your story in the anthology. Too bad you had to cut the loading scene.

Very interesting blog.....
It would be interesting to read how these scenes get deleted. Do you have to edit them out because of the storyline or for other reasons?

Great prize, Colleen. Hmmm, I may have to try for that myself--or force you to autograph all the ones of yours I already have, mwah-hah-hah!. I've posted the full info on my blog today, everyone, just above this one.


Good luck!

I love the idea of deleted scenes! I "ALWAYS" go to an authors site when I read a book I've liked to make sure I sign up for their newsletters, or to see whats "up and coming." The idea of deleted scenes is fascinating! I also enjoy when authors (when it's available) take photos of places in the books...sometimes a photo of a house, or garden sparks the author and it gives the reader a cool visual! Maybe it just takes us adult readers back to our childhood "picture books!" :)
