Golden Heart Finalists – Where Are We Now?

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Back in 2007, WHERE SHE BELONGS finaled in the prestigious Romance Writers of America Golden Heart contest. Yep, it’s mentioned on some of my covers. Most every year, the group of finalists creates an online sisterhood. My year, 2007, we called ourselves the Bond Girls in honor of ’07 and created a wonderful community as well as a group blog that took a lot of time and effort. It was beautiful, well-run and well-organized (I say as one of several volunteers behind the scenes), but unfortunately only a few months into the blog’s inception the Internet was hit with a mega-gremlin, and the Bond Girls blog suffered an untimely death.

Another Golden Heart “class,” the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood, survives to this day with a healthy group blog that appears here to stay. Today, I and other members of the Bond Girls as well as the Wild Cards (the GH finalists from ’05) are featured on the Ruby Slippered blog. Hop on over to catch up on my own goings-on, as well as several others, including B.C. writer Susan Lyons.

A Note About Comments

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

My delete finger has been a little trigger-happy with comments on my blog lately. Sometimes I empty the spam folder before I realize that a comment might not really be spam. And once I’ve accidentally deleted all the spam comments, I can’t get back to them again.

So if you have left a comment on my blog lately and you come back and don’t see it, that is why. Sorry, it got caught in the spam filter and something about the dashboard on WordPress must’ve changed, because I am losing those comments before getting a chance to check out if they are really spam or not.

The best way for me to realize that you are not spam is to mention in your comment where you saw the link to the post on which you are commenting. If you came to my blog from Facebook, let me know that. If you came to my blog through Twitter or Instagram, let me know that.  You are much less likely to get lumped into the spam category along with all the comments from SEO website engines.

Apologies to anyone whose comments I may have inadvertently deleted. Practically nobody comments on blogs anymore, so it is easy to get trigger-happy. 🙂 But I do welcome comments, if you wish  to leave them here rather than on Facebook, for example.
