Right. So In February, Berkley published my historical Scandal. And recently, Scandal was on three of Dear Author’s reviewer lists of top reads for 2009, including Jane’s. Indiscreet made a couple of those lists, too. I was really really flattered by that.
Today, Scandal was included on Dear Author’s list of Top 100 Romances. Not Top 100 for 2009. Top 100 ever. Take a look at the names and books on that list. I would hyperventilate if I were to meet some of those authors. Probably all of them. The way I did when I met Mary Balogh. She probably thinks I’m a total dork — Thankfully, I doubt she remembers me by name.
This is quite an emotional moment for me because Scandal was almost the book that wasn’t.
I am flattered beyond words that Scandal would show up on a list like that.
