Time for some good news

Life, and this blog reflecting it, has been decidedly downbeat lately so  I'm really happy to be able to share some much better news with you  - some really great news.

I've been holding on to the secret though I was almost bursting with excitement because I had to wait for the latest edition of Romantic Times Magazine to come out so that the news could be announced officially. Now that the latest issue is up on their web site I can tell you . . . .

My book The Konstantos Marriage Demand won Best Harlequin Presents Extra 2010 in the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Awards!

I am so thrilled by this. I  have been nominated for the Best Presents/Presents Extra three times now but this is my first win and it really made my day when the email came through. Thank you to all the RT reviewers' for this wonderful  honour.

And special congratulations too to my friend Anne McAllister  whose book The Virgin's Proposition won Best Presents.

And still connected with RT, I was really delighted to see that my newest release in America - that's the Presents Extra  edition of The Proud Wife -  has been awarded 4.5  stars in their reviews. I don't have a copy of the review yet but as soon as it's available I'll let you know.

But I have been asked to contribute a post about The Proud Wife to the Romantic Times  blog for this month,  The topic was on Lovers Reunited and The Proud Wife fitted perfectly into that theme. I've just heard that the blog is up now on the Romantic Times site  so  I hope you'll visit there as well and read all about it.

It's so lovely to have some really good news to report.

That is wonderful news Kate, congratulations!!

p.s. I enjoyed reading the Proud Wife, and was hooked from page one ;o) Loved how you combined the various media for the main characters to communicate, the best were the SMS's - genius!!

I read The Konstantos Marriage Demand this afternoon and loved it. And went and bought some more of your novels that I missed when they first came out. You're a bad influence! ;)
