So I do have the little image on the side of my site, but this weekend I received a certificate! This is an award voted on by a jury and I was so thrilled that this book in particular had done so well. It’s basically a rom-com and plays by those over-the-top personality rules that lead to outrageous situations and hijinks, which didn’t always, uh, play to expectations, I guess.
But at its core it was about two people who had an attraction but had to work through their own personal crap to get the relationship to work. It’s fun, it’s sexy, but we tried hard to make the characters grow and understand themselves better together than when they were apart. I felt like this award validated that at least for some, we succeeded.
