The winner of December's contest for a copy of my upcoming novel plus a jazzy little compass was Caroline Tammets of Wisconsin. Don't forget to enter this month's contest. We're giving away the same package in Jan, Feb, Mar and April.
On another note, I just received some unexpected news that lets me swim with the big fish, at least for a little while! The Penny Tree has been nominated by Romantic Times for a Reviewers Choice Award for Best Women's Fiction.
I certainly don't expect to win (take a look at the novels and authors I'm up against below and you'll understand why) but the nomination is truly an honor and a great way to start the new year.
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond
Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky
The Christmas Pearl by Dorothea Benton Frank
