American Title II Winner Announced!

Now that the Romantic Times Convention has come and gone, I can finally announce who won the American Title II contest. It was Gerri Russell with her wonderful Scottish medieval manuscript, The Warrior Trainer.

It's been a long six months and while a part of me is sad the contest is over, I'm thrilled that Gerri's dream of publication is going to come true in January of 2007!

Friday morning at the convention, the finalists had a breakfast that I had hoped to attend, but unfortunately, work and family obligations kept me away. But I plan to make up for it by partying in Atlanta this July when I meet up with the finalists who will be attending the RWA National convention.

Reading about Gerri's experience brought a big ole fat lump to my throat.

Oh, and check out the beautiful cover Dorchester designed for her book!

Great new look, Maria.

As for Gerri's win, I'm thrilled for her. She's in my 2005 WildCard GH finalist yahoo loop. And did you check out the quote on her cover??? OMIGOD! I'd almost kill (almost not quite) for a quote from JAK aka Amanda Quick. Not only does she have a great cover, she's got a fantastic quote.

Doesn't she? Who wouldn't love to have a Jayne Ann Krentz quote on their cover?

PS I love my new look, too!

Gerri got a gorgeous cover! What a wonderful experience for her all around. Yay!

Btw--I noticed that JAK is teaching a workshop at nationals together with SEP! Woohoo!
