RWA Nationals: Golden Heart Win!

Today was a fabulous day — at the RITA/Golden Heart Award Ceremony tonight, I won the Golden Heart in the Regency Historical category!

This came as a huge shock, and my whole body was shaking for at least twenty minutes after the announcement. According to my friend Terry, who was my date to the event, I at least managed to sound coherent, so I consider that to be a great accomplishment. Obviously, I’m tremendously grateful for this honor, and I think it will still take a few days for it to sink in.

I will blog again in the next couple of days with a recap of Nationals and, better yet, my plans for my next books. But, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have stumbled across this site — publishing is a wild ride, and it’s always easier when you have supportive people cheering you on.

Picture below, but I need to sleep if I’m going to get up in time to have fun before my flight back to San Francisco!


  1. Sara, I am so proud of you!

  5. Congratulations, Sara! I’m sure it’s all a blur, but I’m the one who got the honor of announcing your name for all the world to hear.
