You Heard It Here: Happiness Is…

We’re nearing the end of the month so it’s time for my gratitude diary… This month was too easy since I was reminded (needlessly) how beautiful the covers are for the Adrenaline Highs series.

This month, happiness is winning the JABBIC Contest! The Houston Bay Area Chapter of the RWA sponsors this fun contest and Danger Zone and Dangerously Close took 1st and 2nd place, respectively, in the romantic suspense category as both the Grand Prize and Readers’ Choice winners! I’m so proud and in love with my covers! I know they are all over my website, but what the hell…here they are again. <G>

What about you? Any contest entries? Did you final in one or win one? Don’t be shy. I have some very good friends who will admit to being contest sluts. LOL. Are you one of them?

  1. I live your covers and I’ve meant to tell you how much I like your Happiness is posts. I might just steal the idea. 🙂 I entered the RT and won, the Rita and lost but that’s really it. I would loveto enter more but I don’t hear about them until they’re in full swing… :/

    • Hi Shawna,
      Thank you! I love my covers too. And the Happiness Is kind of started as a fluke, but I think it’s important to find the happy things in life and celebrate them often! You can steal it… just give me a shout out. LOL. Congrats on your RT win! That’s awesome! There are only a few contests I enter each year. It gets expensive! Thanks for coming by and congrats on the release of Journey of Awakening! So thrilled for you!

  2. I adore your covers and my The Blue Dolphin cover reminds me of yours. All that blue and black…not from bruises…just, well you know. : ) Contests? What are those? I barely have time to read my RWR let alone find time to enter a contest. MUST do that. Now.

    • Hi Robena,
      Yes! I love your Blue Dolphin cover! It’s gorgeous! Um… you know, contests… like the Golden Heart you finaled in. LOL. Congrats on THAT! Not too many of us get that far! Thanks for stopping in! Now go enter a contest!

  3. Congrats, Dee! That’s awesome. I’ve always liked your covers, and obviously everyone else thinks the same way.
    I’ll do a little brag – Lone Wolf, one of my Samhain Publishing books won the Psyche Award at the recent The Romance Studio’s CAPA awards. I was thrilled 🙂

    • Hi Shelley,
      Thanks! They are extra special covers, I think. Congrats on the Psyche Award! That’s awesome! I’m thrilled for you! I love hearing these stories! Love that my chapter/writer mates are so successful! Thanks for stopping in.

  4. Yes, those are definitely gorgeous book covers, Dee J! Love them. Can’t wait to see the next cover for book #4.

    As for me, I was really happy to get an e-mail from my editor in the UK saying that Dr. Tall, Dark…and Dangerous, one of my Medical Romances, won the reviewers’ choice award at Cataromance. Yay!

    • Hi Lynne,
      Thank you! I’m with you… waiting impatiently for cover #4. Haha. Hope to have it soon. Congrats on Dr. Tall, Dark…and Dangerous winning the reviewers’ choice award!
      That is so cool! Very thrilled for you. I know you’re a reformed contest bunny. I need to follow in your footsteps. LOL. Thanks for coming by!

  5. Love your covers Dee. I’m happy that I just finished my first round of edits on my first Carina book. It’s good to remember to count my blessings sometimes.

    • Hi Jana,
      Thank you! Welcome to Carina and congrats on finishing those first round edits! How exciting! Enjoy every step, every milestone. There is always something to be happy about. It’s an amazing journey and Carina is really terrific. Thanks for stopping in!

  6. Your covers are hot and exciting. They make a reader want to dive beneath and get to the story! It’s no accident they placed 1st & 2nd.

    I haven’t entered a darn thing lately, but I got the announcement about the TARA recently and thought…maybe.

    • Hi Sam,
      Thank you! I feel the same way about my covers. I’m SO lucky and damn I know it! Enter that contest!! Go! It can’t hurt. Thanks for coming by!
