JUST WHEN YOU THINK 2007 IS ALL OVER...

...someone leaves a message about an award nomination. Well, when I'd checked my inbox I discovered what it's all about.

THE SECRET LIFE OF LADY GABRIELLA has been shortlisted by Romantic Times as Best Harlequin Romance of the year, along with Ally Blake, Trish Wylie, Claire Baxter and Cara Colter. What great company!

And -- there's more. I'm also nominated for a Career Achievement Love & Laughter Award. I'm in great company there, too, with Teresa Southwick also nominated for a Career Achievement award -- although not in the same category, so that's extra good!

Other great nominations are Michelle Douglas for her First Series Romance, HIS CHRISTMAS ANGEL, which you can still catch if you're quick. And Natasha Oakley for her Niroli series Presents, The Tycoon's Princess Bride.

I loved Lady Gabriella... and I can't think of a more worthy recipient for the Career Achievement Love and Laughter Award.

Congrats Liz and to all the Harlequin Romance authors and other authors.

Lady Gabriella is a very special and memorable romance to me long after reading it....and will always be special to me personally because it was the first Liz Fielding romance and the first Harlequin Romance book I ever read. So nice to see this news after a long day!

Congrats congrats congrats!

So, on the lifetime L&L, does that mean they're going to do a lifetime tugs really well at the heartstrings award in the future for you?:) Because you do the tugging thing so well, too!

Many many congratulations, Liz - great news - and so wonderfully well deserved. Specially the Career Achievement nomination. Fantastic. (I'm so pleased for you that it took me four attempts to work out how to spell nomination correctly!
