One day last week…

…I felt like Kate Winslet standing on the bow of a ship being queen of the world (without the imminent death part) (I hope).

On this one day…

…I received three wonderful reviews for In the Spirit.

…I received, in the mail, a certificate for Twice Upon A Roadtrip’s finaling in the Passionate Ink chapter’s 2005 Passionate Plume contest.

…I saw Forever Again listed as an honorable mention on Lori’s Top Reads of 2006 list! With names like Suzanne Brockmann, Lisa Kleypas and Loretta Chase on her list, I felt wicked damn good about being mentioned!

And…this was all like only a week after learning 72 Hours is a CAPA nominee for Contemporary Romance.

It was a pretty damn fine day to be me. (It was also an easy day to strive for that “Be optimistic” resolution. It lasted until I pulled the revision draft of the OMG DEADLINE! book.)
