Guess what, guess what, guess what! Yesterday RWA (Romance Writers of America) announced its finalists for this year's RITA competition (think the Oscars of romance writing). Guess who got nominated? Okay, I know the suspense is killing you, so I'll just spill it... me! I'm totally in shock, but SCANDAL SHEET is up for a RITA for best novel with strong romantic elements. Woot, woot!!
The bad news: I had already decided that it just wasn't financially possible to attend the RWA conference (and award ceremony) this year. Nashville is one long expensive flight from California.
The good news: I hear kidneys are going for a great price on the black market. And I have two! I mean, who really needs two kidneys, right? That's just overkill. If I sold one... and maybe a small chunk of my liver... I might be able to make airfare...
I'll keep you posted on that front. In the meantime, it's party time! I've got cyber champagne, chocolates, and a very loud stereo. Who's in?
