The online loops are beginning to buzz…the Golden Heart finalists for 2010 will be announced in one week. What is the Golden Heart? It’s the most prestigious award for unpublished authors, organized by RWA (Romance Writers of America) with the winners announced at the national conference in July. Not just announced. Red carpet. Formal attire. Huge drop down pictures of the author. Big speech in front of thousands.
And the finalists all get pretty silver hearts to attach to their nametags at the conference, and people might clap as they enter an elevator. Looks like serious fun!
If you want a first hand look, hop over to: http://www.rubyslipperedsisterhood.com/rss/ These ladies all finaled last year and then created a website/blog about it. Great information here! Good luck to all of the entrants and those holding their breath until March 25th – Announcement Day.
