I though I’d just pop in and share some excitement with you. The second Coorah Creek Novel – The Wild One has just won TWO US awards.
The Wild One was a finalist in the Book Buyers best Award, sponsored by the Orange Country Chapter of Romance Writers of America , in the category for a mainstream romance. I was thrilled to be on a shortlist – but just knew my category would be won by the fabulous book Tiffany Girl by Deeanne Gist. After all, it won a RITA award this year.
Imagine then how thrilled I was to receive an email saying I’d won that category.
The Wild One then went on to the Top Pick contest, against the winners of each category. Here I was sitting alongside several fabulous authors including, and this was a real thrill for me, Brenda Novak. She is a wonderful author and I just love her books. I could hardly believe it when The Wild One was named the top pick for 2016. (And yes – I did get very misty indeed).
It’s a shame I wasn’t able to be in the US for that announcement, but I am hovering near the front door waiting for parcel delivery person. And my husband has been given a task for this weekend – to install a shelf in my office for the awards. Then , if I’m having a bad day when the words just don’t come , I can look up and be reminded of those readers who have supported me and loved my characters and their stories.
Thank you all.
