So much going on. So little time. I’ve decided to update in bullet points this week, which is really almost over (late late late … story of my life these days!) I’m dreadfully tired … more so than I think I’ve been in ages. But I’m pushing forward. Lots to do. So here we go:
- The Good: Awesome, spectacular, incredible review on the Romantic Times website … thank you so much, Kathe Robin! You can click here to get to my Author Profile, where there are links to the reviews on both Grace and Faith. They were kind enough to nominate me for a RT Award in the category of “Best First Historical” in 2007, as well. And it’s a very good thing I read that, because just before I found that review, I found:
- The Bad: Horrible, wretched, heart-wrenching review at Rakehell … which is a blog that focuses on historical romances set in the Regency era. ~strumming fingers~ It’s the first bad review I’ve ever had, for either of my books. Now, I don’t expect everyone to love my work, but this one really hit me hard. The reviewer was particularly scathing. I’m seldom a person who questions herself, and I typically skip blithely through life with very few worries about what someone might think of me, of the way I dress, of the things I say or do … or of the things I write. But, you know. It kinda hurt. I’ll be fair and post the link to that review here, too, so that it doesn’t seem as though I’m only putting the pretty stuff here.
- The Saints: Woo Hoo! Geaux Saints … Superbowl bound! Watched the NFC Championship game with my heart in my throat, and by the fourth quarter, I was pacing, gesturing frantically at the TV, and yelling at my cat, who remained gloriously unimpressed. Color me happy. Use black and gold, please. With glitter.
