There I was, working on revisions to some book or other when my phone rang. A nice lady from the RWA National office in Houston got up very early to let me know that Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish has been nominated for a RITA award in the Regency Historical Category. I thanked the nice lady sincerely, hung up, then carried on like the American Tourister gorilla in the privacy of my kitchen for about ten minutes.
Then I called Deb Werksman, my editor, and carried on for another fifteen minutes.
