2011 Grace Award Winner!

Four a.m. yesterday morning, I found a note in my email, “Congratulations, Linda Yezak, Grace Award Winner!”

Let me tell ya–I didn’t need caffeine to start my day yesterday. Nuttin’s better’n full-rush adrenaline!

The Grace Award is reader based. Readers nominate novels for final judges to read and choose from. For Give the Lady a Ride to  have been nominated for the Romance/Historical Romance genre out of all the wonderful romances out there was an amazing feat, but to have won? Yowzah! I beyond honored!

Thank you to all who nominated it, and thanks to the judges, Jessica Patch, Janalyn Voight, and Rachel Wilder, for deeming it worthy of the award!

    Ha! I just reread what I wrote earlier: “Four a.m. yesterday morning.” How funny. I would’ve been in a mess if it had been four a.m. yesterday afternoon! 😀
