Oops…DEBRIEFING THE DEAD did it again!
Does that sound flip? I don’t mean it to be – really! I’m just so much in shock right now. (Again.) (Maybe, after all this, I should stop feeling shocked that people love this book as much as I do. :))
This book. THIS book is…
I have no words. As an author, that tells you something of my state of mind.
Over ONE HUNDRED rejections for this book (at least 124, after which I stopped counting). And now it’s a double-winner in the HOLT Medallion contest (Best Paranormal AND Best First Book), Romance Writers of America RITA® Award Finalist, Booksellers Best Patti Shenberger Award Finalist for Best First Book, InD’tale Magazine RONE Award Finalist, AND this – a Royal Palm Literary Award Finalist.
This has been such a crazy journey so far. Tomorrow, we leave for New York, and in about nine days, I’ll know the results of both the Booksellers Best award (on Wednesday 7/24) and the RITAs (Friday 7/26). Both the RONEs and the RPLA banquet are in October. Eek!
Has anyone seen my fingernails?? I think I chewed them all off already…..
