My Riptide book, Light a Candle came out at a rather tumultuous time in my life… Looking back, I can’t believe it’s been almost a year. Nine months – that’s a baby, y’all!
So, for me, a lot of the joy in the new release was shadowed by stuff happening in “real life”. And, as much as I love Will and Dusty (I really love Dusty… and Leo 🐽), I sort of projected some of those shadows onto the book, and forgot that… Well, I love Will and Dusty, lol. And the educator in me loved playing with Greek history (even when Joey was afraid of pedophiles popping up – heh, heh, heh.)
Well, some time has passed, and I have the distance to look at my boys and Club Deviant again, with fresh eyes. I like this book. (Is that conceited?)
But! I’m not the only one who likes it! I found out today from my awesome publisher and from my amazing friend that Light a Candle is a finalist in the National Leather Association – International’s PAULINE REAGE NOVEL AWARD.
Not only am I grouped w L.A. Witt / Lauren Gallagher and J.A. Rock, but I’m in a group w Laura Antinou. Great googly mooglies!
So, I hope you’ll check out NLA-I’s various contacts, and I *really* hope you’ll check out Light a Candle.
Congrats to all the nominees in all the categories – I’ll be reading some articles this week, I think!
