What can I say about the most amazing week of the year so far other than WOW! To all my fellow-Unsinkables finalists, congratulations, and I'm so glad I got to meet so many of you!
To win a Golden Heart® (in the paranormal romance section) for BLOODBORN - Bk1 in the Light Blade series was truly a great honour and deeply moving. I'm still pinching myself!
A mega-thank you to everyone who rang or emailed me with congrats or posted their woo-hoo's on the various e-loops I'm a part of - it's what makes being a part of three incredible organisations - RWOZ, RWNZ, RWA - so, so, so special.
Here's a few photos from the night for those of you who couldn't be there.
The lights were so bright you couldn't see the 2000+ strong audience (thank goodness - it was nerve racking enough!).
There were four huge 7m high Jumbotron screens placed around the room - just so everyone could see how much you were shaking and trembling behind the podium!
