THE Daphne

Photobucket
I picked up THE Daphne today. Apparently *I* (and others who have won Best Overall) can say that. People who have won the categories (which I also did), have to say something like The Daphne for Paranormal/Fantasy/Time Travel/Futuristic Mystery/Suspense CATEGORY.

This is all in the contract between the RWA(r) Kiss of Death Chapter and the Daphne Du Maurier estate.

I'm THRILLED that Heart Change will be going to the estate/library, too! WOW! That really impresses me. I also get to put Winner of The Daphne Du Maurier Award of Excellence on my book covers.

The photos are not good. Though Mom's kitchen/dining room was relatively bright, the camera insisted on flashing. I still haven't mastered all the settings (all of which seemed to be on when I got it back from the repair guy, Bless him).

Anyway, it's a top "scrolled" hammered brass/bronze. I LUVS it! Lips in the background, then rose, with a nice skull (with an area that appears to be "missing" as if an object had hit and kilt the poor human).

Smiling, smiling, smiling.

May you have many smiles, too.

Yikes, I deleted the wrong comment, a congrats from Melissa Mayhue (who was also a finalist!). Anyway Rose and Janice's comments got posted twice so I was going to take off Rose's...that's pretty much the only time I mess with comments.

THANKS ALL.
