Love for Empty Nests and Bowerbirds from the RWNZ
Last Saturday night Empty Nests and Bowerbirds tied for second in the 2016 Koru Awards, Long Romance section, given by the Romance Writers of New Zealand. I was told (but not by someone on the awards committee so I can’t be sure) that this was the first time they had a same gender novel submitted. So that’s cool.
I almost deleted these books back in 2014. It was a giant 130k mess that didn’t quite work and I couldn’t get my head around. Cooper West kept my finger off the big delete button and bought me a copy of Scrivener which let me handle the restructure. My awesome editor, Tricia Kristufek, back by everyone at Dreamspinner Press, handled my author freakouts, strange schedule, and dyslexia brilliantly.
And then there’s my partner who not only listened to all my obsessing and panicking but is willfully going through it again as I work on my next book.
So, thank you everyone for all the love and support.
