I’d like to thank the Academy…

Just before Christmas, I got a lovely package from Ancient City Romance Authors


Aren’t they pretty?  These are the First Place “Heart of Excellence” Awards I won for INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY (Best Short Contemporary Romance) & KNOCK ME FOR A LOOP (Best Contemporary Single Title Romance).

THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS also took Second Place in the Best Paranormal Romance category.

Yep.  It was a good year for Books by Heidi in Ancient City. :icecube

Thank you so much to the readers & judges who gifted all three of my 2011 releases with such a huge honor! :candycane

And thank you to ACRA & whoever actually boxed these babies up to mail.  It couldn’t have been easy. :pumpkin

    Thank you, my Darlings! It was a real treat when they arrived because I honestly didn’t know they were coming. Sometimes with these things you just…win First Place, you don’t actually get a prize. But these are so purty. :booby (Purty, I said purty…not perky. :pumpkin )

    I would have been here sooner, but I’ve spend all day looking for my dress to where to the awards ceremony! I went with the red dress that Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman and of course my date tonight is Bradley.

    Yes, that was me you heard when your name was announced…

    Whoo, Whoo, Whoo (ala Julia Roberts cheering at the polo match in Pretty Woman).

    (Okay actually today was much less glamorous than this aka inventory paperwork….but just let’s just go with my above fantasy…kthxbye)
