Bayou Born is a
2014 RONE Award Finalist

Life is still stirring the pot and has kicked my butt for months in ways I never imagined. However, now and again, something good rains in. I’m thrilled to announce that Bayou Born, book one in my Fleur de Lis series. is now a 2014 RONE Award Finalist.

Thank you!

Bayou Born
by Linda Joyce

“It is now being read and rated by a panel of professional judges which will determine the winner of the “Best Indie or Small Published book of 2014”.

Winners will be presented at the gala RONE awards ceremony on July 11th, 2014 at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, NV, in conjunction with the Romance Novel Convention”
~ InD’tale Magazine

The Contemporary General Category had twenty-nine nominees. The finalist list is down to nine. My book could not have made it to the finals without the support of friends and readers. I am grateful. Again, thank you!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Bayou Born will make it across the finish line and go from Finalist to Winner.

      Thank you!
      On another note, I found the Christmas story book Rex Rogers put together in 2008. Sat and read several stories again, including yours…and gazed at the photos of everyone. It was a nice, warm-fuzzy moment. Miss seeing you and the KCWG.
