Wicked Game is a PRISM finalist!

Wicked Game made the finals for the 2009 PRISM award, given by the Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal chapter (FF&P) of Romance Writers of America.

Wicked Game finaled in the Light Paranormal category. I am thrilled to be nominated with two very funny books, and because they are so good, I predict I shall bring home my third 3rd-place PRISM certificate (after Eyes of Crow and Voice of Crow in the Fantasy category).

And then...with three sets of 3, I shall achieve divinity. Or Nirvana. Or at least a free drink and some lovely hors d'oeuvres.

Here are all the 2009 PRISM finalists, in alphabetical order within each category. Giant happy congrats to everyone!:

Thanks, everyone!

Nancy, it's an honor to final with you--LA VIDA VAMPIRE was great! And TROUBLE WITH MOONLIGHT is fantastically funny, too. I look forward to finally meeting you at RWA this year. :-)

Carolyn, thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
