Welcome Marie-Claude Bourque!

Welcome Marie-Claude Bourque!  American Title V finalist.

As I ride the tide of the American Title V contest, sponsored by Romantic Times and Dorchester Publishing, I don’t have much time to think about what we are all after, the actual prize. I am so focused on the day to day promotion and going through each round, that I sometimes forget the winner will soon become a published author. As the rounds go on every month, and more and more contestants are getting eliminated through online voting at the Romantic Times Book Reviews website, someone is getting closer to the ultimate prize.
This is the fifth installment of the American Title contest. Let me introduce you to the past winners, all authors with a successful career.
American Title I winnerJanice Lynn
Janice won with the novel Jane Millionaire. She has now published three more medical romances for Mills and Boon: The Doctor’s Meant-To-Be MarriageThe Heart Surgeon’s Secret Son and The Doctor’s Pregnancy Bombshell.
American Title II winnerGerri Russel

American Title III winnerJenny Gardiner
