Twice Upon an Eventide is a Dream Realm Finalist

Hi all, I found out late last night that "Twice Upon an Eventide" is a DRA (Dream Realm) 2008 finalist in the Anthology category.

I'm feeling rather overwhelmed yet very happy! This little duet, which has failed to garner many reviews has been very well received in competition, and for that, I am very thankful.

Anyway, that's the news! Fingers crossed Shannah and I do well in the next stage!

Join us in welcoming Spring!


In celebration of the grand opening of the new Books We Love Reader's group at Yahoo, we're inviting you to get acquainted with some of our BWL authors by participating in a fun scavenger hunt. We promise it isn't hard. You just need to join the group and then follow the provided links listed on the loop the morning of March 20th, answer some really easy questions, send them to Ginger and wait to see if you've won. The answers are all hiding in plain site at the various websites…you just have to find and collect them all to be entered into a drawing for one of eighteen books. Some will even be personally autographed. You'll have two days to hunt. The contest ends Saturday at midnight.

All entries must be received by Ginger Simpson at by noon on Sunday, March 22, 2009. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.       

Whether you come to play or not, we hope you will join us in celebrating the beginning of what we hope will be a stimulating and pleasant group experience. If you aren't familiar with us, please visit to get an idea of who we are and what we're about.

I'm sure you may have already played in a contest or two there. If not, maybe you'd like to enter one while you're there.

Jude Pittman has assembled a wonderful group of talented authors, but without readers, that talent has no purpose. Remember, Saturday, March 20th.       

Come join us on the BWL Reader's group and help us welcome in Spring!
