2019 PRISM Award Finalist | The Boss

I am thrilled to announce that The Boss (Fire’s Edge #1) is a finalist in the Dark Paranormal category for the 2019 PRISM Award!


The PRISM is contest is held annually by the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal (FF&P) chapter of RWA (Romance Writers of America) – one of the awesome online chapters to which I belong. The contest is for any authors (not just chapter members) who wish to enter published novels or novellas in various categories. Multiple judges then read and score every submission.
