Romance Writer Pro Status

I’ve been so wrapped up in taking care of business, I forgot to mention I received my Pro status with Romance Writer’s of America. Received my Pro pin in the mail on September 24th.

My co-authored and dear friend, Jo Gregory of North Carolina, and received Pro status for completing and submitting "Unforgettable Journey." It may have been rejected but shortly after won fifth place in the "Grand Beginnings" contest. We'll get that baby published, for sure.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...
