Her Perfect Life Won the Women’s Fiction Writers Association STAR Award

Her Perfect Life Rebecca Taylor; Wildland by Rebecca Hodge, A Better Mother by Hadley Leggett

This past weekend was the Women’s Fiction Writers Association annual retreat in Albuquerque New Mexico. Every year they announce the winners of their STAR Award for published fiction and the Rising Star Award for unpublished manuscripts.

I’m thrilled to announce that Her Perfect Life won the STAR Award in the General category!

The Women’s Fiction Writers Association is a wonderful organization for writers (not just women!) who are actively working on manuscripts that fall within the “women’s fiction” domain. They regularly offer fantastic workshops that provide education on a wide array of craft and publishing topics.

Not to mention, they have some of the most knowledgable, charitable, and kind members I have ever met!

Thank you WFWA for this tremendous honor. And I’d like to send a special thank you to all the judges and event organizers that help make opportunities like this available to authors.

The finalist for the STAR Award:

Truth of the Matter by Jamie Beck

The Companion by Kim Taylor Blakemore

Her Perfect Life by Rebecca Taylor

Wildland by Rebecca Hodge

Face Down in Rising Sun by K.D. Allbaugh

A Door Between Us by Ehsaneh Sadr

Congratulations to all the finalists this year!

Goodreads Giveaway for The Secret Next Door

Goodreads Giveaway for The Secret Next Door

My publisher, Sourcebooks, is currently giving away 25 print copies of my new book, The Secret Next Door, on Goodreads. The official release isn’t until November 9th, so this is a chance to win a copy early! Here is the link.

It’s the perfect neighborhood, filled with not-so-perfect people.

Alyson Tinsdale is giving her son the childhood she never had: a stable family, loving home, and a great school in a safe neighborhood. When they move into the home of her dreams in one of Denver’s most sought-after developments, Alyson works hard to fit in and impress the other mothers.

Bonnie Sloan is the neighborhood matriarch. With her oldest son headed to Yale, and her youngest starting kindergarten, Bonnie is now pursuing her own long-held political aspirations. But it’s her middle child, Elijah, and their private family struggles, that cast a shadow over her plans.

When the open space behind some of the most expensive homes gets slated for development into an amusement facility, the neighborhood becomes deeply divided. The personal pressures and community conflicts ratchet with every passing day, but it’s when a thirteen-year-old boy is found dead beside the lake, that simmering tensions boil over into panic.

Gossip flows, lies are exposed, and accusations are made as cracks run through the community’s once solid foundations. The neighborhood’s faith in exterior appearances is eclipsed by the secrets every house keeps.

Rebecca Taylor, author of Her Perfect Life, returns with this fast-paced, engrossing novel that reminds us that nothing is ever as perfect as it seems.
