I knew yesterday was going to be fabulous because I had an appointment to go to the Sourcebooks’ office in Connecticut. I’ve visited both the NYC and Chicago offices but not this one. My editor, Deb Werksman, works out of the Milford location and I had been wanting to pay a visit. What visit it was! Deb, Susie, and Laura treated me to a yummy lunch and put together a detailed presentation for me. To say I felt loved would be an understatement!
Than as if that wasn’t awesome enough, I found out that two of my books have been nominated for the RT Reviewers Choice Awards!
To see my first contemporary romance novel listed with these fine authors and their work is mind-blowing. Seriously?! Brenda Novak is one of my idols…I’m still stunned.
But the great news kept going….
My vamps have been nominated too! Holy. Moly.
I am humbled and grateful and I love what I do.
Huge thanks to RT Book Reviews for the nods and to all of YOU–the readers!! You guys rock!
I am so freaking excited!!! VAMPIRE TROUBLE is an RT Book Reviews Reviewer’s Choice Award nominee in the Paranormal Worldbuilding category.
To say that I’m surprised would be an understatement, especially once I saw the list of the finalists! I will never get over the fact that my name is tossed in there with all of these amazing authors. I mean, these are writers that I’ve been reading for years. I keep thinking they made a mistake but it’s out there now, so no backsies! lol
But the excitement doesn’t stop there because several of my Sourcebooks sisters were also recognized this year.
