When His Highness and I learned that Her One and Only had been nominated for a Christy Award, an Autumn trip to Nashville suddenly sounded to us like a great
respite from our mom and dad duties getaway.
Several of us then changed into fancy dresses in a public restroom, chatting while we fixed our hair and make-up. Conversations while applying make-up are, as a rule, good conversations.
His Highness filmed the announcement of the contemporary romance category, presented by Mesu Andrews.
I was so surprised and thrilled when Her One and Only won.
Every rare once in awhile, a character springs to life, full blown. Not often. Usually, my heroes and heroines are shy. I have to push, pull, and tug them into the light. I have to work to uncover their layers and understand their fears, dreams, personalities, quirks. Dru Porter was in the former group. She sprang to life. She was bold and brave and blunt and it was great fun to walk in her high heeled shoes while writing Her One and Only.
A lot of writing days are challenging days. But Wednesday was not one of those days. 🙂 I’ll remember it with a smile for years to come.
I’d like to spread the love, so I’m giving away the two sets of two books that His Highness and I received as party favors at the gala.
The below giveaway is now closed. Big congratulations to Angela Deni and Adrienne! I hope you enjoy Christy and A Baxter Family Christmas.
