Maybe it sounds silly because after all these are characters in a book and not real people. But the truth is, you can't just throw two characters into a story and force them to work. So Clay waited, not always patiently.
It was worth the wait both for Clay (lol) and for me as a writer. The book is being very good to me in the contest circuit this year. Today I found out that it is a finalist in the National Reader's Choice Awards - making it a hat trick of nominations this year. It's gratifying and slightly overwhelming in a wonderful way. And it goes to show that a heroine doesn't have to be physically perfect to be awesome.
I also found out that the next Harlequin Romance I write (as soon as I finish my current wip!) will be another Cadence Creek book. I'm excited to dig in as I know what it's about and I think it's going to be great fun. Plus I loved writing the first 2 Cadence Creek books, so going back is lovely!
All in all there's some great Thursday love going around. Including in my #1k1hr group, so I'd better get back to it - I'm so close to THE END it's silly.
