Yes, I've been unusually excited today.
A novella of mine - The Vampire Skye, which I blogged about recently - has been nominated by The Romance Reviews reviewers for Best Book of 2011 in the GLBT Paranormal Romance category.
It's up against a strong field with stiff competition, and it's the first time I've been nominated for anything so I'll be very interested to see how it does.
Voting takes place on The Romance Reviews website (voters have to be logged in to The Romance Reviews) between 16 and 31 March, with results announced on 2 April.
If you'd like to read the novella before voting, just to make sure it's the one you want to vote for, it's available as an ebook from theAmazon.co.uk Kindle shop, the Amazon.com Kindle shop, the
Barnes & Noble Nook website and direct from the publishers, Xcite Books.
Just by way of a short description - it's a BDSM-themed lesbian vampire menage story set in a more-or-less present-day world in which the sovereign debt crisis has created public disorder and imposed cutbacks on the agency that manages the vampire situation and tries to keep their existence secret.
I was going to do a whole other blog on the social significance of erotica but it'll have to wait a day or two...
