Somewhere or other I saw the author Courtney Milan say that she goes through a period of hating every book she writes before she’s done with it. I didn’t have that experience with A Lady Awakened or A Gentleman Undone, but boy, did I make up for lost time with A Woman Entangled. There were days – many of them in a row – when I doubted the book was ever going to come together in a shape suitable for publication, let alone suitable for following up what I thought were a pretty good debut and sophomore effort.
So good reviews and emails from readers maybe mean a little bit more with this book, and maybe still come as something of a surprise. And I’m surprised, and utterly delighted, to learn that RT Book Reviews awarded AWE its Seal of Excellence for July!
Yay, Romantic Times! Are any of you readers & writers planning on going to the convention next year? I’ve never been to an RT convention, but I’m thinking this next one – in New Orleans – might be a good first.
Oh, also, if you haven’t read A Woman Entangled yet, be sure to enter the giveaway on Goodreads.
