GOTH winner (and squees)

The winner of the ARC of Goddess of the Hunt is . . . Lorelei Brown!  Yay! Lorelei, e-mail me your address and it will go out in the mail tomorrow.

And while we’re at it, I want to register two squees.  First, for Maggie Robinson.  You may remember that she sold her first two sensual erotic historical romance to Berkley Heat a month or two ago–to be marketed under Margaret Rowe.  Now, she’s sold four books and two novellas to Kensington Brava.  Congratulations, Maggie!  You are going to be a superstar!

Second, I want to take a moment to squee for Vicky Dreiling.  A year and a half ago, Vicky and I both had historical romances that finaled in North Texas’s Great Expectations contest.  Vicky took first place; I took last.  But before they’d announced the judging results, we had exchanged a few e-mails, discovered that we met at RWA Nationals the year before.  We both had our ups and downs in the months that followed–and sometime in May last year I sent her this in an e-mail:

I just have this feeling about you, too–even though I’ve never read anything you wrote except those 100 words I saw on Bookend’s website.  I just *know* you’re going to sell, and when you do, I’m going to be first in line to buy that book.

And guess what?  Vicky Dreiling just sold a trilogy to Grand Central!

So go congratulate these ladies.  And hopefully, in a year, I will be giving away ARCs to their books.  :)

Courtney Milan writes historical romances, which might lead people to think that she could be cool. In reality, she's about four different kinds of geeky. At present, this blog is where Courtney applies semi-dormant geek skills to publishing.
