I'm so happy to report that Chasing Hope, my latest contemporary romance, was nominated for the prestigious RONE Award through InD'tale Magazine. To be nominated, the book must be reviewed in the magazine and score 4.5-5 Stars, with the Crowned Heart for Excellence. Round Two of the competition is reader voting and our category runs May 4-10. The contest is a very prestigious one and I'm so honored that my last three books have been nominated. We haven't made it to the finals - yet. I'm hoping maybe the third time is the charm!

The top 6 in my category get to advance to the finals where they will be judged by industry professionals. The award will be presented at their annual conference this fall in Ohio.
