Y'all may know some of this already -- because I've posted on Facebook and elsewhere about it -- but it doesn't seem real until I post it here. ~grin~
Sometimes, life is good *and* fun at the same time, and the good
and fun stuff happen about the same time...
I WON THE MAGGIE!!!
Well, What Happens In Vegas... won the Maggie in Series Contemporary. I wasn't able to go to the ceremony, so I haven't actually seen it yet (so it doesn't seem quite real yet). But SQUEEE nonetheless.
Fun Thing: I went and got some new head shots made, and the photographer had some fun with me. I think this photo is what some people think romance writers *should* look like. (amazing what Photoshop can do, huh?)
(I do not have that much hair or that much cleavage, alas...)
Good Thing: The final Marshall book has a title : Redemption of a Hollywood Starlet. I'm kind of sad to know that it's done and dusted. I've loved writing the Marshall books, and now it's over. ~frown~ I'll have to find new hunks to crush on.
Fun Thing: Finding new hunks to crush on. ~grin~
Good Thing: The Power and the Glory is #9 on the Mills and Boon top 10 this week (along with Lynn Raye Harris's Captive But Forbidden*). It will be available in the US next month!
Fun thing: Planning a trip to New Orleans to research the new book. I haven't been down there since before Katrina, so I'm excited to go visit an old friend (because that's what New Orleans is like -- an old friend who shows you a great time and feeds you fabulous food every time you come to town). Note to self: pack stretchy pants...
Good thing: Fall is finally here. I'm loving the cooler temps and I even broke out the frog feet this morning to keep my toes warm. My frog feet slippers are also a fun thing. They make me smile.
Do you have good things or fun things happening? What's making you happy these days?
*Edited to change Lynn's title to the actual title. Sorry, Lynn.
