Wow! Got some great news last night. First, I learned that Just the Sexiest Man Alive scored an Honorable Mention in romance at the 2009 New York Book Festival. Very exciting! Then, a couple hours later, I found out that Practice Makes Perfect was chosen as an Honorable Mention in romance at the 2009 Beach Book Festival. Whoo-hoo, not a bad night!
The Beach Book Festival “spotlight[s] the hottest reads of the upcoming summer season.” The New York Book Festival “celebrat[es] books that deserve greater recognition from the world’s publishing capital.” I’m truly honored that my books were chosen to be part of each of these festivals. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend either festival– both are in New York this weekend and I will be at Lori Foster’s Reader/Author Get Together. On the other hand, I’m really looking forward to the Lori Foster event, so it’s pretty much a win-win situation!

And I know there are A LOT of people, myself included, looking forward to seeing you this weekend 🙂
How WONDERFUL! Congratulations. Your books totally deserve this. How exciting. Though I would’ve made them more than honorable mention if I was running those contests!
But really, that is huge either way. Yay!!
Congrats Julie! No one deserves this more than you!
Have fun this weekend with Lori Foster’s event!
And I’m so looking forward to this weekend!
Congratulations! I just got my copy of Practice Makes Perfect and plan to start it tonight. I’ve already read and truly enjoyed, Just the Sexiest Man Alive.
Congrats Julie! I loved Just the Sexiest Man Alive and have Practive Makes Perfect in my tbr pile.
Hi Kim and Liza! So happy to hear you both enjoyed JTSMA! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you like Practice Makes Perfect as well…
Would have loved to meet you in person; alas, I’m working that day.
Have a great time! Lori’s a wonderful lady and I hope you meet lots of new readers.
