Dangerous Waters is a finalist in the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense

So last week I found out that DANGEROUS WATERS was a finalist in the Published Division of Kiss of Death's Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense (Single Title Romantic Mystery/Suspense).

Very nice!

Kiss of Death is an online writing chapter of the Romance Writers of America. It is the only chapter I belong to and I enjoy the online courses and the pre-conference tour. This year I'm missing the tour, unfortunately, but I am attending RWA nationals where the winners of the Daphne are announced (at the Death by Chocolate party). It's my third time at nationals, but my very first time being nominated for anything beside "best wallflower" award.

My fellow nominees are fabulous. This is who I am up against:

This is my favorite book of Melinda's. Not only do we share an agent, we share a publishing house and editor.

Joe Green's story. I'm a massive Cindy Gerard fangirl and I love this story.
I've been wanting to read Bronwyn Parry for a while now. The only thing that put me off was the price of the ebook. Well now I have the perfect excuse to indulge my Romantic Suspense addiction--AND it's set in Australia. Win:win.

I've had the Chasing Evil trilogy in my TBR pile for some time. Guess what I'm reading this weekend? I've heard great things about this author.

Last, but hopefully not least...
 
Me!
Good company or what?

So thanks to the judges who put me among the finalists. I know the sort of time and commitment it takes to judge and I really appreciate it :)

A snow leopard biologist becomes the prey when cold war secrets threaten to expose a modern-day spy ring, and an elite British soldier is forced to choose between his country and his heart.​​

Wildlife biologist Axelle Dehn isn’t about to let anyone harm her endangered snow leopards—not the poacher intent on killing them, nor the soldier who wants to use them as bait. But Axelle is unknowingly entangled in a conflict that stretches back three decades, a conflict that could spark a war between two of the world’s great nations.
British SAS soldier, Ty Dempsey, is on a mission to hunt down an infamous Russian terrorist in a remote region of Afghanistan. Dempsey hasn’t failed a mission yet, but when Axelle is kidnapped by the Russian, he is forced to choose between duty and his heart. He risks everything to save the determined, prickly woman he’s fallen for, but in doing so sparks a deadly series of events that threaten to expose the most successful spy in history. A spy who will destroy anyone who gets in his way.

Blogging at NYUS

Because I have lost the power to blog here (temporary I am sure) I am again guest blogging on NOT YOUR USUAL SUSPECTS. Check out our hidden talents!
Here's a painting I didn't share over there. Technically it isn't great but I love patterns in nature so I love this painting anyway.
