It’s always good when a student, or a client, does well. Debra Jess was one of the workshoppers at Viable Paradise XVI, where I was one of the instructors, and after that, she was one of my editorial clients. And I’m pleased as punch to say that her novel, Blood Surfer, has won the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award (NERFA) in the Paranormal and Futuristic category. Blood Surfer was also a finalist in the Best First Novel category.
Needless to say, I am tickled pink on her behalf.
