MAJOR SQUEEEEE MOMENT THIS WEEK! (And, also, the schedule of re-runs for my Vampire Vignettes!)
Yes, I had a major, jaw-dropping, heart thumping whoo hooing squeee moment this week. RT Book Reviews Magazine announced their 2010 nominees for the Reviewer’s Choice Book Awards and JABRIL was nominated. You can check it out here – RT Book Reviews 2010 Nominees.
I wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t even KNOW about it until the fantastic reviewer from Fresh Fiction (Hi Heather!) e-mailed to congratulate me. Winners will be announced at the RT Convention in April, which is nice because the convention’s in L.A. this year and it’s the first time I’ve been able to go. Of course, it would be lovely if I won, but it’s an honor just to be nominated. (Yeah, right. Everyone says that, no one means it. I mean it’s great to be nominated and I’m totally thrilled … but I’d be even more thrilled to WIN!!! LOL)
Anyway, so that definitely put a nice spin on my week. I’m thoroughly entrenched in NaNo — my word count as of this writing is over 17,600, which is not at all bad for the first week. I always like to start strong, because you never know what might slow you down at the end.
And, as promised, I’m posting the re-run schedule for the Vampire Vignettes. Notice that the first two vignettes will get a bit more face time, because I think more people have missed those two. But all four will run for at least a week before I post a brand new vignette to celebrate the winter holidays.
Here’s the schedule:
November 15th — Vignette #1 — A Vampire New Year’s Eve
November 28th — Vignette #2 — A Vampire Valentine
December 12th — Vignette #3 — The Invitation
December 19th — Vignette #4 — The Party
December 25th — Vignette #5 — to be announced
So that means the re-runs begin next Sunday, and this will be the last re-run for at least six months since I’ll be doing the run-up to SOPHIA after the first of the year!! Whoo hooo!
Okay, I’m going to get some more words in on my NaNo project before it’s time for sleep.
See you next week!

Of course….your books are simply the best! Are civilians welcomed at the RT Convention? I live in NorCal and would love to go…to see you win!
The RT Booklovers Convention is open to everyone, but you have to register for the entire con to attention the Awards Ceremony. Here’s the convention link … http://www.rtbookreviews.com/convention-home
I think I’m doing the Book Expo as part of the con, though, and I THINK that can be purchased as a separate entry. I’m still looking into that,since I’ve never done it before.
I’m squeeing for you! Congrats!
Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How cool is that?!?!?! But now we have to wait to April? Well, I am so thrilled for you D.B., you totally deserve the recognition.
That is some awesome news D.B.!!! Just so I understand this, this list is the nominees for books released this year and the winners will be announced at next years RT convention?
The list is books REVIEWED this year and the winners are announced at next year’s convention. ‘cuz JABRIL was released in 2009, but not reviewed until January 2010.
Got it, thanks!
