UNACCUSTOMED AS I AM...

Blowing one's own trumpet is not something the British are comfortable with. I'm just posting this as a news item, okay? :)



THE MARRIAGE MIRACLE won a RITA!

FANTABULOUS!!!! So delighted for you. It couldn't happen to a nicer person or a better book.

Love,
Mags

Nicola Marsh said...

Liz,
blow that trumpet long and hard!!!
I'm thrilled for you, and Mattie's story is thoroughly deserving of the RITA. It's one of my all-time Romance faves :)
And don't worry about that trumpet. I've picked it up and run with it at my blog too :)
You so deserve it!

Jan Jones said...

Oh Liz, how wonderful!
Many, many congratulations!

Love Jan

*grabs huge trumpet for Liz*

PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRPPPP!!!!

Wonderful news, Liz! Congratulations! I was reading through the winners list, nodding here, smiling there.... then saw your name and scared the bejesus out of the cats shouting, "YAAAAAAY!!"

Congratulations, Liz! It couldn't happen to a nicer person... and a more deserving writer!

Love

In this case, dear Liz, blowing your own trumpet is not just appropriate - it's compulsory!

CONGRATULATIONS

And I've been trumpeting for you - and Marion Lennox - over on my blog too. If a trumpet's worth blowing, it's worth blowing loudly in as many places as possible

I am so so happy for you

Love

Kate

T'other Kate speaks for me too. In fact, word for word *g*

(and I LOVE being able to say "I told you so")

Yyyaaaayyyy Liz! I am so excited for you. I can still picture the opening scene of that book with such clarity, almost word for word it spoke so strongly to me. Wonderful book, wonderful win!!!

Congratulations, Liz. I haven't read the book but having briefly met you at an RNA conference and knowing what a nice person you are, I am sure that the award is well deserved.

Liz, I can almost imagine Matty sitting there with a smug smile on her face saying, "See? I told you it would be a good story."

Just goes to show what a memorable character she is.

Big hugs and mega congratualtions.

Congratulations!
You definitely deserve it.
(we all need to blow our trumpets once in a while)

Your work has always kept me in awe, and has inspired me to make an honest effort at writing too.

Thank you and my sincere congratulations.

Heather said...

Congratulations Liz!

A beautiful and inspiring story such as this truly deserves such a grand honor!

Liz Fielding said...

Thank you so much, everyone!

Phillipa said...

I still posted on the wrong thread so here it is again: CONGRATULATIONS!

Sharon J said...

Huge, huge, HUGE, H-U-G-E congratulations, Liz!

It's strange that we find blowing our trumpets so diffiult because there are times when we have every reason to be proud of what we've achieved, and this is certainly one of those times for you.

Liz Fielding said...

Actually, Sharon, the big story with the Rita was that the books very nearly didn't make it. If it hadn't been for my ed Fedexing another five copies on the day before they were due in Texas, I'd have been toast.

Nil for the post office.
One hundred percent for the lovely Jo Carr.

Pam P. said...

How thrilling for you, Liz. Congratulations!

Michelle Styles said...

Very well deserved it is too. A wonderful wonderful book!
