I Got Lucky Tonight...

By Robin Kaye with a little help from her friends

My pulse raced. I was afraid to breathe as I reached out to take it in my hand. It was hard, smooth, unyielding. I licked my lips in anticipation waiting to take possession. It was mine, all mine. My only regret was that it didn't come with batteries.

No, I'm not talking about B.O.B., Romeo, Romeo just won the Golden Leaf Award for Best Single Title!

I'm still amazed. Romeo, Romeo was up against two wonderful books, Stolen Fury by Elizabeth Naughton and The Forbidden Daughter by Shobhan Bantwal.

Winning awards is great and I've truly been blessed, but when it comes right down to it, every time I get fan mail, I feel the same thrill. Writing is such a solitary occupation, and when someone recognizes my work, I get such a rush.

I just received a 4-Star Review for Breakfast in Bed coming out in the December Romantic Times Magazine and better yet, one of my fans sent it to me with a note that she couldn't wait to read it. It doesn't get much better than that!

By the way, I'm at the New Jersey Romance Writers Conference this weekend. There will be a book signing open to the public from today, Saturday Oct. 24 from 4:00 to 5:30 at the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel in Iselin, New Jersey. If you're in the area, I hope you'll stop by.
