Live RWA results: Laurie, Sharon, who's next?

Calls for the Golden Heart paranormal category are going out now, and our very own LAURIE GREEN has finaled with not one, but TWO SFR manuscripts!


Congratulations, Laurie!!!

Also, in my final year of Golden Heart eligibility, I just got the call for my sci-fi/paranormal blend ECHO 8 (Sharon Lynn Fisher). I'm stunned.
