Honorable Mentions at New York and Beach Book Festivals!

beach bookWow!  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!

    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!!

    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.

    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.
