I just got news that Edie Ramer, an amazing writer and wonderful person, is a finalist in the Romantic Times American Title V Contest. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a contest sponsored by Romantic Times that gives one talented writer the chance to become published. Narrowed down from hundreds of entries, Edie is one of four remaining finalists. The winner will have a chance to be published with Dorchester!

So, if you’d like to read an excerpt by the finalists, go to:


If you’d like to vote for Edie’s manuscript, “Dead People,” or any of the other manuscripts, send a blank email to:


Make sure to put the title of the manuscript you are voting for in the subject line!

I know they’d all appreciate your vote and you’d be helping a brilliant writer see her dream come true! Wow! Go you!
