Last night was wonderful! I had a lovely book signing with my friends Nisha Sharma and Tina Gabrielle at the TO BE CONTINUED bookstore in Metuchen, NJ. Central Jersey readers this is an awesome place for you to go, hang out and pick up some books! Plus they are sooo romance friendly!
We had an absolutely lovely time there and I’m looking forward to doing another event there soon.
Of course, the night got better when I got home because there was a package waiting for me and guess what it contained? SQUEEEE! My RITA® nomination pin and an invite to the RITA® and GOLDEN HEART® reception. Here is a photo of it (yes, I put the frame on it in the photo! Will have to think how to preserve the invite for posterity’s sake).
Wow was the first word that came to mind when the representative from the Romance Writers of America® called to say that THE LOST was a finalist for the RITA in the Paranormal Romance category.
Wow! The RITA is the equivalent of an OSCAR in the romance world and my book is a finalist. Wow.
(Can you tell I am still in disbelief and shock and sooooo excited!)
Thank you to RWA and all the judges who took the time to read THE LOST. Thank you to all the final judges who will take their time to read the book.
Many thanks to all of you who have read it and let me know how much you liked it and also, a big thanks to my editors. I hope you will like the second book in the SIN HUNTER series, THE CLAIMED (May 2012), as well.
Wow. A big congrats to all the other RITA finalists as well as all the Golden Heart finalists. I see the names of many friends on both and am totally excited for you! If you want to check out who else is nominated, you can click here to see the list.
Anaheim, here I come!
