Yesterday morning I received an email telling me that I was a double nominee in the Australian Romantic Book of the Year award, affectionately known as the RuBY! It’s the Romance Writers of Australia’s award for published authors and the last time I was nominated was back in 2007 so you can imagine my reaction. No? Okay, I’ll tell you 😉 Stunned. Thrilled. Happy.
This is Boomerang Bride‘s fourth nomination for 2012 and it joins and joins the ARRA, RT Reviewers Choice Award and RITA nomination. I am so thrilled that readers are loving this story so much they feel it’s worthy of a nomination. At this point I am pinching myself.
My medical romance, Single Dad’s Triple Trouble has also been nominated. Set on the glorious island of Tasmania, it is a reunion story and I think goes to the heart of a modern day dilemma that many women are facing. They’re in their 30’s, they want a child but their partner does not. What choices do they have?
Congratulations to my fellow nominees- these are all awesome books from very talented authors. Looking forward to partying at the conference in August!
