Signs and Portents?
As we came up the road the other day, this amazing con trail just next to the sun caught my eye. My first thought was that it looked like the sun was sending out a giant flare but by the time we stopped and I hopped out to take the picture, the winds had shifted the con trail to the left so that the picture looks to me as if the sun is a warrior wielding a giant lance.
It was only about 1:30 but at this time of year the sun is so low in the south that it spends much of the day scuttling along behind the trees on the ridge line.
All of which has nothing to do with the exciting news I received last night from my editor. In A Dark Season is a Romantic Times nominee for Best Mystery and Suspense Novel of 2008 in the category of Contemporary Mystery. Here's the list ~

Aye, law . . . (doing a little happy dance!)
