For some reason, I didn't think the RIO results would be posted until the end of the month, but they came out today!
Come see who the reviewers thought were the best of the year at the RIO blog.
How did I do? Funny you should ask.
I tied for 3rd in the Debut Novel category!!!
And in a sweet little twist of fate, I also got a 4.5 gravestone (that's way too cute) review from Michelle Puffer at the Gotta Write Network.
Not Quite Dead is an often amusing, well-written, romp of a read. It carried me from beginning to end with lighthearted touches, genuine feel-good romance and even some centuries-old evil. If you are looking for a fun, quick read that's a bit quirky and sentimental too, I'd suggest Not Quite Dead.
Hot damn. I tell you what, if I didn't have to go out and rake leaves in my muddy backyard, I'd say that today was definitely my day.
Hey, congrats, Sela!
You can do a little dance on those leaves. :)
Hey, not bad.
Myself, I've been eating "honourable mentions" for some time.
CONGRATS!!!! That is awesome.
Too bad about the leaves. :D
Congratulations, Babe! You deserve it!
Woo Hoo! Mega Congrats!!!
Congrats! 3rd is still a winner in my eyes! Now that you're with an RWA approved publisher...aren't you stoked?
Now that is a very nice, articulate review!
Congrats, Sela. If you must rake leaves - dance on them, too! You deserve a little celebrating.
What an honor, Sela! Congratulations!
