Forgive the brevity of this post- I am neck deep in edits, am planning the next novel, and my ‘real’ job is chilling at me from the corner of the room- oh, and there is ironing to do (when isn’t there?!)- but I just had to nip by to shout YIPPEE!!!
I have just heard that for the second year running I have been nominated in the Best Erotic Writer category at this year ETO Awards!!!
As if this wasn’t fantastic news enough, I am up there with two of my dearest friends and colleagues, the wonderful Kd Grace and the non-stop Lucy Felthouse- both part of the Brit Babe team! Believe me when I tell you that without the support of the Brit Babes, I’d have given up this writing lark a long time ago!! Their support and encouragement is constant and essential!!
Not only that- but the fourth lady in the five nomination line up is the one and only Violet Blue!! A leading figure in sex education, editor of some of the best anthologies in the business and- most important of all (to me anyway)- Violet was the first person to publish any of my work in a book!!
The final runner in the best writer group is the one and only Sylvia Day, waving the flag for hot romance for the second year running!!
I’ve placed my vote- which was very very difficult- not just within the writer a category, but for best publisher (I’ve written for all buy one of the 5 nominees), best retailer, best product….the list is long, and each nominee really deserves to be there!!
So if you are in the trade, and can vote- please do!! http://www.erotictradeonly.
Four of the Brit Babes will be attending the awards at the NEC in June this year- myself, KD Grace, Victoria Blisse, and Lexie Bay – so if you’re coming along- do find us and say hello!
Happy voting everyone,
