The door bell rang at 8am just as I was cleaning my teeth and DS2 staggered in clutching a big box. I had a momentary panic that I had ordered too many books of The French Doctor’s Midwife Bride which had arrived the week before.
But when I opened the box I was so excited to see the compilation book of five of the RUBY finalists (the Australian Romantic book of the Year). There were all the covers of these books and mine in the middle.
I am excited, stunned, honored, humbled and thrilled to be one of the finalists and holding this big book makes it suddenly seem real.
