Holy Moses (not religious!)

It's one o'clock in the afternoon and I've done nothing but email and fielding calls from relatives. Talk about the unproductive life of Ms. Carys Weldon.

In the best news I've heard all week:

The 2006 "Reveal Your Inner Vixen" Contest Finalists were announced last night. I actually received a phone call from the contest chair!

You can check it out for yourself at: http://www.marylandromancewriters.org/contest.html

But I'll save you the hassle--because this is the first Romance Writers of America contest I've ever entered and I'm totally jazzed at the results:

Congratulations to our finalists!The 2006 "Reveal Your Inner Vixen" Contest showcased the chemistry between the hero and heroine. The entered scene could be a flirtation, a kiss or a fully described love scene, just as long as the judges could feel that tension!

Finalists:
Series Contemporary (1950 to Present, with 40,000-79,000 words):
Donna M. Rogers for "There's Only Been You"
Dee Scheffler for "BIG Trouble"
Carys Weldon for "Confessions of a BBW Cover Model"

Traci Post for "Seducing Mr. Cupcake"
Rebecca Cline for "Jinx" THIS IS MY BEST FRIEND, BY THE WAY!!!!!!

In light of this news and the way my morning has been going, I'll have to save the sexy story for another day. I WILL get to it though, so keep checking back.
