(Well, we’re actually jumping the gun a bit)
The 2009 RITA and Golden Heart Finalists have just been announced! AND, we Smugglers are very proud that two of our favorite authors have been nominated for these prestigious awards.
We offer a whole-hearted cheer of congratulations to:
Nalini Singh for Mine to Possess as a RITA Finalist for Paranormal Romance. We are both Nalini Singh fans (in fact, Ana is a self-professed Nalini-Singh-aholic) — just check out our Nalini Singh Extravaganza, our interview with Nalini, our Angels’ Blood special (including an interview with the heroine of the novel, Elena Deveraux), or Nalini’s Smugglivus Post!
You can check out Ana’s review of the RITA nominated Mine to Possess HERE .
AND congratulations to…
The fabulous Meljean Brook, a 2009 RITA Finalist in the Romance Novella category for “Thicker Than Blood”!!!!!!
Both of us are, again, major Meljean fangirls. We love her Guardians Series (just check out all our reviews and Meljean love), and have had the great pleasure of having Meljean over for interviews, talking about her inspirations, and for Smugglivus too. (Not to mention, Meljean is just one of the coolest people on teh internets. Just check out her fabulous blog!)
You can check out our review of the now RITA nominated novella “Thicker Than Blood” HERE.
CONGRATULATIONS TO NALINI AND MELJEAN!!! We have our fingers and toes crossed for you!
And, of course, congrats to all the other RITA and Golden Heart finalists as well.
