So, for those of you who are new to romance, you should know that it’s time for DABWAHA!
What is DABWAHA? It’s like March Madness for romance writers–and you vote on the winner. But before I go any farther, I have another, more important announcement to make.
CALLING ALL DARLENE MARSHALL FANS! It is now time for our first annual Darlene Marshall reread! Here’s the way it’s going to work. Stop, drop everything, and go immediately and reread every Darlene Marshall book. Do not pass go. Do not even finish reading this blog post. Go read Sea Change–an amazing book about a woman who dresses as a man to pass as a ship’s doctor. You don’t want to miss this reread–there’s a cat named Pirate! There’s amputation! There’s murder! There is willful gender blindness of the hilarious sort. Go now! And once you’ve read it once, go read it a second time–and a third.
Are they gone? Good! That should hold ’em for the next twelve hours or so–long enough for the rest of us to do the important deed.
Okay, now the real message: Go vote for Unveiled by Courtney Milan in DABWAHA. Unveiled is up against Darlene Marshall’s Sea Change. Which is a lovely book, on any other day of the week. But for today–it’s going down to the bottom of Davy Jones’s Locker.
EDIT: Wouldn’t it be great if I included the link? http://dabwaha.wordpress.com/ It’s here. Go! Vote like the wind!
