ARCs went out to reviewers today. I can’t believe it’s less than a month until The Scarlet Deep releases! I am happy to announce we had over 150 entries for the ARC giveaway, and I have three winners to announce today:
MirandaV (who is waiting for an overdue baby and really REALLY needs some distraction)
Congratulations! Winners are chosen by random number, so thank you all for entering and thank you for all your funny stories and encouragement! I love hearing from you guys. Winners, please email me at ElizabethHunterWrites@gmail.com so I can get your contact info.
I also wanted to highlight something fun here on the blog. NPR Books is running a Summer of Love book list for romance and readers are allowed to nominate their favorites! Obviously, it would be super flattering if any of my books were nominated, but I’m mostly highlighting this because the romance genre doesn’t get a lot of love (ha!) in Book People circles. It’s usually the butt of a joke, not a discussion of literary merit. So for NPR Books to highlight the romance genre in a serious way is really cool!
I hope you’ll offer nominations for your favorites. (You can nominate up to five.) I’ll be nominating Grace Draven, Penny Reid, Meljean Brook, and Nalini Singh. Lots of my favorites are probably classified as fantasy or urban fantasy, rather than romance, but these four ladies are definitely romance, and some of my faves.
I’m also going to start a biweekly post next Wednesday called “Why you should be reading _______” to highlight some of my favorite authors. That will be more of a genre mix.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
