And the Nominees Are… ME! :D

I gotta tell you, few things in this world PISS me off as much as waking up in the morning. My arch nemesis is that stupid little alarm clock application on my iPhone. People who wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed should be shot. In the kneecap. Dragged over a grated drawbridge by a formula-one race car, soaked in alcohol, beaten up, and then shot again. If after all that and they are still breathing, kick the crap out of them again.

So, this morning started out like any other normal Thursday morning. Alarm went off. I cracked my eyelids, moaned, let out a string of scathing expletives that would make a nun blush, and crawled out of bed like a hungover gutter rat. Which is weird, since I don’t drink.

Now we hit the remainder of my morning routine. I crawl through the house and pay homage to the gods of the arabica bean (turn on the Keurig) and hit the bathroom after that (have to do something for a minute while the coffee brews).

I won’t bore you (or scar you) with my morning bathroom ritual. Let’s just say, some people read. I turn on my iPhone, check book sales, check twitter, check facebook, and lastly…go through the gumpteenmillion emails I seem to get when I’m sleeping. Well. LO AND BEFRIGGING HOLD…I got an email that made me not only smile, but jump up and down for joy! (Which I don’t recommend until AFTER the completion of the morning ritual)

I received an email from the great folks at the Paranormal Romance Guild. They reviewed my book Origins a few months back and I actually blushed from their review. Well needless to say, when I read their email that said they were nominating it for the Best Read of 2011, I almost fainted!

SO now that it’s nominated, I NEED YOUR HELP!
