The first week of 2008 is shaping up very well.
Finalists in the prestigious Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award include three of my favourite writers, Annie West, Anna Campbell and Amanda Ashby. Hmm, there must be something fortuitous about having a name that begins with ‘A’, eh? See the full run down of nominees here. I’m picking out my next purchases from this list.
Speaking of purchases, lovely Wendy Toliver‘s debut, The Secret Life of a Teenage Siren is out now. There’s a great interview with Wendy about how she came up with the concept of the book on Sara Hantz’s blog. Sara herself is up for the Aussie Author of the Year Award. Click on this to vote for her. And in a couple of days, Tina Ferraro’s second release, How to Hook a Hottie will be out. Cute cover, Tina.
Finally, I just found out I WON a contest, Romance Writers of Australia‘s Selling Synopsis competition. It’s my first-ever win, so I’m rather excited. Congratulations to the place-getters–Bec Sampson, Nikki Beynon, Fiona Gregory, Donna Allen, and Jennifer Reid. Nikki’s partial was also requested by the editor judge, so keep your fingers crossed for her.
What’s your good news story for this week?
