Some Good News

Today I found out that my October historical Indiscreet is a Bookseller’s Best finalist! That’s pretty good news and it means that all three of the books I had out in 2009 have been finalists for pretty big awards, the RITA, the RomCon, and this one. I’m not used to this at all.

In fact, I’d taken my son out to breakfast/lunch and we were playing Hangman on my phone. (my devious word: pickles) He was stumped and staring at the phone when he handed it to me and said, someone’s calling you. Well, my heart sank because Friday night I did a major upgrade of some databases to SQL 2008 and I thought it was the dev team calling to say something had gone wrong, and I was going to have to leave the restaurant before we even got our food. Which is to say, I was expecting a frantic tech telling me xyz wasn’t working or something so when it wasn’t that, I thought it must be a wrong number only she was asking for me by name. . . Anyway, it was a fun call to get on a Saturday afternoon.

So, now I get to party with all the other finalists! W00t!

NB: Sometime while I was on the phone my son figured out the word. Rats. I thought for sure he would stay stumped.
