Feeling a bit overwhelmed — in a good way

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.

    *sending you a big hug and a smacking kiss* Oooh, what wonderful news (& what a lovely Christmas present)! Big congrats, Carolyn!!!

    Don't be embarrassed about the hyperventilating – I hyperventilated when I met Joan Aiken and when I met poor Jack Zipes. In addition, I kept talking to him in English, though he tried to talk to me in German. 🙂
