Folks,Viking Ship

I wanted to pit Odin’s End against other categories and even published authors. So I submitted it to the RWA NOLA Stars Suzannah 2009 contest. And Odin’s End has finaled – out of 100 entries, it was in the top SIX!!! Final placement TBD. Here we go:

Congratulations to the 2009 Suzannah Contest Finalists

  • The Gavel’s Echo by Anne-Marie Carroll (Romantic Suspense)
  • My Shackled Marquess by Rhea Ference (Historical)
  • Night Walker by Lisa Kessler (Paranormal)
  • Betrothed by Alyssia Kirkhart (Historical)
  • Odin’s End by Dawna Rand (Novel with Romantic Elements)
  • A Very Patient Man by Susan Shellabarger w/a Susan Sabin (Historical)

The Suzannah Contest pits unpublished and published writers all up against one another. We have no categories separating them. We’re just looking for the best all around. We had a 100 entries this year and these six were the cream of our crop. All of our finalists this year are unpublished writers! Congrats to you all!

Good Luck in the finals.
