Orchard Hill nominated for CAPA awards
Cora here, reporting from Orchard Hill. The nominees for The Romance Studio's CAPA (Cupid And Psyche Awards)were announced recently on the site's yahoo loop. I'm happy to say that a number of Kara's fellow Wild Rose Press authors were nominated for awards, including White Roses in Bloom members Cindy K. Green for "Relationship Rescue," Carol Ann Erhardt for Joshua's Hope and Cami Checketts for The Broken Path. The first two were nominated from Inspirational Romance of the Year and the last for a Psyche Award. The Psyche Award is a category for romances that did not meet the nomination criteria but that reviewers felt deserved special recognition. Friends Sarita Leone and Sandra Kay were nominated as well - Sarita Leone's Bay Leaves and Bundles for a Psyche award and Sandra Kay's Heart of Stone for Contemporary Romance.
Kara and Orchard Hill did pretty well, too. Seven of the Orchard Hill Romances were nominated for Inspirational Romance of the Year - Saving Gracie, Entertaining Angel, Considering Lily, Keeping Faith, Accepting Charity, Disrupting Harmony and Losing Patience. In addition, Kara Lynn was nominated for Favorite Author.
I talked to Kara earlier today and she was very honored to have been recognized in this way, among so many other wonderful authors. She asked that I include a huge thanks to her editor and cover artist, Nicola Martinez and added "Remember earlier this year when I complained about how much work this series was? Well...um...never mind."
Don't forget, a new free Orchard Hill story was recently posted on Kara's website - An Angel's Advice. Please stop by and enjoy this short holiday story.
