Little Gem Winners 2012

Congratulations to the following fourteen authors whose stories will be published in the 2012 Little Gems Diamond Anthology.

3 Donna Woodhouse– Otherwise Engaged

Carmen Gowans–Diamonds In the Sky

Venetia Green-The Diamond Of Friday Street

Venetia Green–The Nun and the Thief

Anna Simons –Seymour’s Folly

Kerrie Starbuck–Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Revenge
