I’ve been frantically trying to smooth out my second Kensington book so I can send it off to the editor/agent, but had to take the time to look up the winners of the Rita awards. As I’ve mentioned before, the Ritas are just about the most prestigious award a romance writer can get. Every year Romance Writers of America holds a huge conference where the awards are presented.
I’m delighted to let you all know that Gwyn Cready won for best paranormal! If you remember, I interviewed Gwyn back in June. I’m not surprised Seducing Mr. Darcy won as it’s a delightful read. If you want a different sort of time travel then run out and pick up her book. After all, it is award winning. 😉
In other good news, I received my second review for my book Wild Heart which will be out in November. Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell gave Wild Heart four stars! The review won’t be posted until closer to the release date, but here are a few snippets to tide you over:
“Lori Brighton weaves together a beautiful historical…”
“This book has a bit of everything, a mystery, magic, romance and the hunt for the truth that will put lives in danger.”
You’ll have to wait closer to the release to read more!
And finally my last bit of good news. Cousin Aaron was kind enough to look up my ranking on Amazon. Ready for it?!!!!!
Sales Rank: #1,580,755
Woohoo! Watch out first place, I’m coming for your spot!
And just since I typed this, my rank slipped to…
Deep breath. I’m all right.
P.S. Come back soon for an interview with author P.J. Mellor and digital artist Melissa Nucera!
Seducing Mr Darcy, now that sounds like the book for me 😉
Give yourself a break Lori! The book’s not for sale yet!
I’m sure it only fell because 5,000 books come out every day…
Good luck on the Kensington book. Fingers crossed. And I’ve been curious about “Seducing Mr. Darcy” since seeing it win the Rita. Didn’t sound like a regular paranormal title. But after a good word from you, I’d really like to check it out. Thanks.
Ha, that’s awesome!
Congratulations on your review! I’m sure you’ll get many more great reviews, too.
I need to check out Deducing Mr. Darcy. Love the title!
Seducing Mr. Darcy is a really fun read, and def. different. Mrs. Giggles even gave it a good review!!!!
Sigh, I’ve slipped back even further on my amazon ranking. But in all seriousness, can you imagine how frantic authors must get about rankings when their book is actually out? lol. Can’t wait to go crazy…again!
Congrats on all the wonderful things happening 🙂 As for Seducing Mr. Darcy… it was a good read, who doesn’t love thinking about Mr. Darcy?! Oh, and thanks cousin Aaron for giving Lori another thing to worry about, J/K lol!
