Thanks, everyone. It will be a fun conference, I'm sure.

Cindy Gerard said...

Thanks guys!
I'll be AWOL the rest of the week. Leaving for NYC tomorrow for meetings with my publisher and to attend the PASIC conference. Oh yeah - and I might be up for some fun too :o)
I'll check back in next week and let you know how big a bite the Big Apple takes out of ME :o).

Thanks for the good wishes, guys. All this time I was thinking we were all in different categories, but I schecked the RWA web site, and Christie and I are in the same one. Ah, well, it's bound to be one of us, right?

Little side note--when I won my Rita years back ('92?) in single title contemporary, there were 3 finalists (get this: I beat Nora Roberts and my good friend Sandra Brown!) and this year we have 9! The number of finalists in each category is based on the number of entries. Back then it was all about historicals.
