Shameless Self-Promotion: Loretta's a Rita Finalist!

Saturday, March 26, 2011
While Loretta is content to stand modestly to one side, I will gladly trumpet her good news: her 2010 book, Last Night's Scandal, is a finalist for the Romance Writers of America Rita Award, in the category of Best Historical Romance. The Rita is the highest award of excellence in romance publishing, and the competition among published books is fierce. I'm delighted that a Nerdy History Girl is a finalist, and of course, it's completely and totally well-deserved. Congratulations, Loretta!

Three cheers for Loretta! Olivia is my favorite of your heroines and I was so happy to see her finally united with Lisle. "Take me to Egypt, dear friend." Perfection! In a fair world the top prize should be yours!
