SOME LOVELY NEWS

THE MARRIAGE MIRACLE, a book that you'll all know is very close to my heart, received yet another honour last night when Romantic Times BOOKclub named it Best Harlequin Romance of 2006.

My colleagues Teresa Southwick and Sandra Marton won Best Silhouette Romance and Best Presents, respectively, so huge congrats to them, too. A click on the link will take you a full list of the winners.

This book has already won the RWA's RITA for Best Short Contemporary Romance and an award from Cataromance. All I need to do now is work out what I did that was so great and do it again!

Congratulations, Liz, I am so delighted for you! You know my feelings about this book! It couldn't happen to a nicer person. And you always come through, never letting your readers down.

Love,
Mags

Huge congratulations, Liz! Mattie's story definitely deserved all the praise it has received. Can I write like you when I grow up? Please?

Liz Fielding said...

Thanks, Mags. You do know how to make a woman feel good!

Lynette, the UK cover was something of stopgap during the changeover from photographic to artwork covers. It was so wrong that I cried when I saw it -- and I'm pretty immune to "wrong" covers. But the US arwork was lovely -- although I do think she might just have been a bit chilly!

Fiona, you started out writing "grown-up"!

Ally Blake said...

Gorgeous news Liz! How lovely.

And what a nice life this book of yours has had. When you think back to how long ago you first 'met' your hero and heroine.

Sigh...

Congrats, Liz.

I adored this book and am so pleased that it has gotten the prizes that it so richly deserves.

It is a book with a lot of heart.

wonderful news, Liz. If you figure out what you did, maybe you should sell the info to the rest of us!

Congratulations!

Love,
Anne

ps: though personally I liked Max the best!

Kate Hardy said...

Wonderful news, Liz - couldn't happen to a nicer author or a better book.

Liz Fielding said...

I think Max was more like a Presents hero, Anne. Ben is definitely a Romance hero -- I can't see Max falling for the rabbit scenario. :)

Nell Dixon said...

Many congratulations and very well deserved. It's a wonderful book.

Kate Walker said...

Many many congratulations Liz - I'm not at all surprised. It was a very special book

And I'm oing to echo Mags - it really couldn't happen to a nicer person and a writer I admire so very much.

Just wish you couild distill whatever it is that goes into these books and bottle it

Love

Kate
Who also loved Max as a hero- but then I love all your heroes

Congratulations, Liz!!! This was a fabulous, brilliant book that everyone who's snobbish about M&B should be forced to read. You do us proud! And this prize is so well deserved.
