Come join the fun!

Well, this is my first official blog posting. It's taken me two days to work up the nerve to give it a shot. But I owe a thank you to my husband Brian for getting the ball rolling for me. (thanks, hon)

Here's a shout out to my Wet Noodle Posse sister at
If you're interested in learning to the ins and outs of writing a novel, head to our blog. All of the Posse members are sharing their knowledge.

Why, do you ask, have I started this blog?

First of all, as a means of spreading the word that I have been chosen as a Golden Heart finalist in the 2008 Romance Writers of America ( annual contest. It is a true honor to be selected. And I am freakin' thrilled!!!!!

Check out my name on the RWA website at :

Secondly, a writer writes, and longs for her words to connect with others. What better way to connect than via the internet. So, here I am. :-)

I'll be here as often as I can, sharing what's going in on my writing life, maybe a bit of what's happening in my family life. Hoping to meet some interesting folks who will be as excited as I am when I finally sell my first manuscript and it finds its way to a book store near you. :-)

Come join my crazy world. I hope to see you back here again soon.

Hey, Pris. Cool, I'm the first person to comment on your blog -- ever! Congrats on your GH final! I'm so happy for you.

Diane Gaston said...

Hey, Pris! Are you going to document the excitement of being a Golden Heart finalist?

PrisAKiss said...

Hey Trish, you're my first!!! Thanks for stopping by to offer congrats!

Diane, you've given me a wonderful idea! Thanks!

Maybe I'll document the excitement of being a GH finalist, and the joy (or stress) of balancing it with my busy life. :-)

You know my crazy life. This should be fun. :-D

I'd love to follow your journey to the GH finals! Keep the posts coming! And congratulations--Chuck and the kids and I are really happy for you!

Seeing y'all with photos, I had to figure out how you did that! So I finally figured it out, but I don't have a head shot of me! I'm always the one taking the pictures in our family.

Here's the only one I could find of me alone, but I'm wearing sunglasses. It will have to do.

Meanwhile, can you post on exactly how you found out you finalled? That would be fun to read about.

All my Love! Brian

Esri Rose said...

Hi, sweetie! Congrats again on your final!

Hi, Kieran! You'll be putting up with me in person soon!

Pris, one more suggestion... I'd put whatever writing name you plan on using as your blog title. Might as well start building that name recognition right from the get go.
