Last week was an exciting one for all of us at Kiss and Thrill, so you’ll have to excuse me for a moment while I pause to brag a bit about my brilliant blogmates.
First up, huge congrats the the amazing and talented Sharon Wray, who not only won the Single Title Romantic Mystery/ Suspense Daphne award for her manuscript ROGUE’S ESCAPE, but also won the overall unpublished Daphne for having the highest score!
Second, we are all thrilled and delighted that Krista Hall won the Golden Heart® for best Romantic Suspense for her fabulous manuscript BROKEN PLACES! Congrats Krista!!!
Last, because Krista couldn’t make it to RWA in Atlanta this year, special thanks go to Sarah Andre, who accepted the award
on Krista’s behalf. Sarah was stunning and wonderful as she delivered Krista’s touching speech. (And thank you to Lena Diaz, who recorded the speech so I could watch the excitement at home.)
The Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense nominees are in! This has to be one of the biggest awards in the book business, and we at Kiss and Thrill are excited that three of this year’s past guests are on the list! So a big round of applause to:
Allison Brennan for her book Kiss Me, Kill Me.
Cindy Gerard for her book With No Remorse
Roxanne St. Claire for her book Face of Danger
Just remember you heard about these books here first! Do we know how to pick them or what? LOL.
Kiss and Thrill wants to congratulate all the authors in both the published and unpublished divisions of the Daphne. We’re rooting for all of you!
