Both Never You and In Deep Final In the 2020 IDA Contest!!

I’m thrilled and honored to announce that two of my steamy, ski romance novellas have finaled in the 2020 IDA Contest. Never You took 2nd Place, and In Deep took 5th Place in the Short Erotic category!

The IDA (International Digital Awards) is a competitive contest sponsored by Oklahoma Romance Writers of America (OKRWA), but is open to all works of fiction in digital format, regardless of romantic content.

Every novella in the Emerald Mountain Series has finaled in, or won, a major romance contest.

It’s such wonderful validation to know my books have been judged worthy by contest judges who’ve read loads of romance. Honestly, it’s a big part of what keeps me writing these books.

Thanks to these contests, and so many wonderful reviews, I’m confident there is a market for my steamy, outdoor adventure romances, and I’m working hard to publish more soon. In the meantime, keep reading to discover what makes each of these novellas so special, and the awards they’ve won.

Or, head on over to my Website to grab your copy of one of these award-winning novellas (or the boxed set—which saves you almost 40% off the individual cover prices).

Here’s a complete list of all the awards, including the 2020 IDA contest, my Emerald Mountain Series novellas have won.
