Awesome Announcement!

Since we've had an extra Friday this month, the Star Light, Star Bright...Interstellar Interview with Lisa Shearin will be here next Friday, May 22nd!
Today I get to announce some awesome news! As you may or may not know RWA National's newsletter contest was canceled last year. Supposedly it was to regroup and come back with a better, and some say more fair, contest. This year was it's first year back and by the guidelines all RWA Chapter Newsletters were eligible, if the editor or chapter president submitted the February 2008 edition (since the current year's contest asks for the previous year's issue).

This past Monday, the Carolina Romance Writers Chapter President received the announcement of finalists. Our chapter was among the names for Document Style, those newsletters submitted via PDF or similar document version to members. I'm proud to say I'm the current and past editor!

I always try to make a great issue, but the February issue is special. It's the month of love, and romance's big moment--Valentine's Day! So I try to pull out any stops in this special issue. I never expected to be a finalist, since I've seen a couple other chapters' examples. I'm ecstatic to know that our newsletter stacks up with those across the US!

While I do deserve kudos for my part, I must also step back and say a big thanks to all the members who submitted for that edition. Along with me they helped make The Final Draft stand out from the pack.
