Well, I didn't win anything, or get any (more) good news, but Tor had bound copies of my new book (New Blood) for me to sign at the publisher signing. It didn't have the official ARC cover on it, just a plain red wrapper, but it was a Book I could hold in my hands! I thought it was very cool.The Eternal Rose by Gail Dayton

From Lina Gardiner

I won the Published Paranormal Daphne du Maurier Contest! I was thrilled to final, and didn’t expect to win first place so it was a huge shock. I couldn’t sleep a wink that night.
