National Readers’ Choice Awards

Filed under: The Summer of Living Dangerously

I’m thrilled to announce that THE SUMMER OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY has been shortlisted for the Novel with Strong Romantic Elements category of the Romance Writers of America’s National Readers’ Choice Awards, run by the Oklahoma chapter of the RWA.

What’s even better is that my dear friend and amazing writer Susanna Kearsley has also been shortlisted in my category, with her novel THE ROSE GARDEN.

Susanna and I have decided to settle this matter in the only honourable way: by drinking tequila shots.

We may be some time.

(The winners will, in fact, be announced in California on at the RWA National Conference in July. My Harlequin buddies Donna Alward and Christyne Butler have been shortlisted too in their category. They may, or may not, also be having a tequila duel.)
