Tonight was the 1st Annual Whitney Awards for LDS writers, and I'm excited to say my critique group was well-represented.
The first award of the evening, Best Romance/Women's Fiction went to Michele Paige Holmes for "Counting Stars." Michele was up against such heavy-hitters as Rachel Nunes and Stephenie Meyer (yes, the one from Twilight fame). Michele was also a finalist in the Best New Author category.
Next was H. B. (Heather) Moore who won Best Historical for "Out of Jerusalem Book 4: Toward the Promised Land." Annette Lyon (Spires of Stone) was also a finalist for this award, and Heather was also a finalist for Book of the Year.
Congratulations to you all!
