I should clarify the title of this post. I never expect to win an award (except perhaps a Nobel Prize, which of course I totally deserve) but recently two have tumbled out of the blue with no warning — and neither of them even hit me on the head. Which is very cool.
SFR Galaxy is a website devoted to “Recognizing the Standout Books in Science Fiction Romance.” And this year, they recognized Rescuing Prince Charming for Best Opening Scene!

The Barbara Award
I’m a member of the Saguaro RWA chapter. I must admit that I wasn’t paying much attention during a recent meeting. Rose Ortiz, our president, was discussing the Barbara Award, which highlights outstanding service to the chapter. Figuring I had absolutely no shot at this, I was mentally applying what our guest speaker had said to my WIP.
That’ll teach me to pay attention. Rose was presenting the award to me.
