A glad end to a hectic day
Today has been strangely hectic, and yet I don’t seem to have achieved anything. Largely because Rose was at home ill again. She spent the morning asleep in bed, so I managed to get my daily 1050 words done (just), but this afternoon I feel absolutely exhausted from running about, but nothing seems to have got done. (Other than making a pint of custard because she wanted comfort food. Half of which is now going solid in the pan.)
However, two very good things have also happened today 🙂
A lovely review for The Wages of Sin
One is that I got this lovely review from Val Kovalin at Obsidian Bookshelf, who really enjoyed The Wages of Sin and voted it a recommended read. She says “I enjoyed reading The Wages of Sin and I’m a reader who usually finds ghost stories to be tedious. However, this one held my undivided attention, starting with the title, …. I liked the flashes of humor expressed by the admiral when he describes the neighbor feud, and I found Jasper and Charles to be appealing characters that I’d love to see in a sequel, practicing their unique investigative abilities.”

and *fanfare* 😉
Captain’s Surrender comes in joint second place in Love Romances Cafe’s Best Historical Romance of 2009 category.
which I will put on my website to celebrate 🙂 Thank you so much to anyone who voted for me! You are very cool and it’s entirely appreciated.
One of the nicest things about this is that the m/m historical romance was judged in with the m/f historical romance, rather than being confined to its own little ghetto. Congratulations too to Charlie Cochrane, whose “Lessons in Temptation” won an Honourable Mention. Given that m/f romance is a very much bigger field than m/m, I think we did pretty well 🙂
