The GoodReads Awards were yesterday and it was a blast and the moderators and everyone associated with it did an outstanding job and me, I was just floored by some of the results. I had voted for the books I loved and when I found out that I was included with some of my favorite authors...you could have knocked me over with a feather.
For starters my boy Crane came in third for Best Side/Supporting Character behind Amy Lane and TJ Klune. Honored Vow got second place honors in the Paranormal category, Rand and Stef took third place in the Cowboy category, Jin and Logan took third place for Best Couple, and the biggest surprise for me, of all, (not once did it ever even cross my mind that I would even place), was for Favorite M/M Author behind Amy Lane and Josh Lanyon. Stunned. And oh so appreciative. My fans make me what I am and if I could reach you all, there would be so much hugging. You guys would be like, woman, get off me, but I would squeeze you anyway. I just sat there, mouth open, looking like a fish out of water. Thoroughly overwhelming. Thank you.
I will confess that the only award I obsessed about, that I hoped for, dreamed about, was Hottest Shifter Character. When I saw that Logan Church was nominated...it was the one. I feel like Logan has changed the most in three books. Jin may be of the "live but don't learn tribe", but his semel has grown. I owe a big piece of that to Ariel Tachna. But when that award was announced, I bounced all around my apartment. That was huge for me. It doesn't feel like enough to say thank you, but it's all I have.
