This calls for rum! Pass the rum! From the bottom of my pirate heart, thank you dear readers. It's because of YOU that Once Upon A True Love's Kiss is an InD'tale RONE awards Finalist. We won't know the winner until the conference in October, but I'm cheering our little anthology--no longer available--on all the way. If you're interested in sailing to the conference in California, you can learn all about it here. There will be over 75 authors to meet, tons of booty so bring an empty chest, and much more.
