RT Reviewer's Choice Awards

First off, here's the big news:
I WON!


What am I looking at? I have no idea.

Lessons Learned received an RT Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Indie Press Contemporary Romance of 2009! I had no idea what to expect going into the ceremony, and had NOTHING prepared to say, so when my name was called I went up there, started shaking, and babbled for a little bit before making it offstage. I didn't fall down or call anyone by the wrong name, so I think it went well.

With amazing editor Angela James. She's made me a better writer with every manuscript she touches.

LB Gregg was my "companion" at the event, which means she got to go in early and sit with me. Thanks to her for the great pics!

I may have had some champagne. Possibly.

More later, I hope!

Thanks, guys! I'm still completely gobsmacked over it all.

Seriously. I got an award the same time as Barbara Taylor Bradford and Tessa Dare. We were on the same stage. O.o It was surreal.

And thanks for the kind comments on the book, too. I so appreciate it!
