Dear Rachelle:

Got your email the other day and will be announcing it soon on my Desert Rose romance writer’s group email loop.

I was 2010’s winner and I want everyone to know that Rachelle and Leigh have come up with a great contest that is fun and easy to enter. I’d also like to say thanks again to all who voted for me last year. Can’t wait to read this year’s finalists.

Thanks, Vicki

Please would you let me know how I can enter. I am a member of ROSA (The Romance Writers Organisation of South Africa) and a number of us would like to take part in the competition.

Would appreciate your prompt feedback.

Many thanks,
