What song is playing on the ipod right now? FAST CAR by Tracy Chapman
Huge news going on at the Nelson Agency this morning. When I got back from the gym, my author Linnea Sinclair had called to tell me that her novel FINDERS KEEPERS was nominated for a RITA for Best First Book.
WOO HOO Linnea!
I can barely contain myself. As y’all know, my agency is young—only been around since 2002. To have an author nominated for a RITA, the top award in the realm of romance is a big, big deal.
And then the news gets even better if that’s possible.
Linnea calls me back an hour later to tell me that GABRIEL’S GHOST was also nominated for a RITA for Best Paranormal/Futuristic. (In case you’re missing it, Linnea writes kick-ass Science Fiction with romance).
WOO HOO again.
I feel like running out right now to buy a new dress for the RITA award ceremony at RWA in Atlanta.
Not only that, but both these titles were also nominated for a RIO award just this week (Reviewers International Organization).
And, just so we don’t scare any of the boys away, Linnea gets just as many emails from her science fiction male fans as from the female SF and romance-reading fans.
Time to celebrate!
