Oh my God! At this time next week I'll be in New York City, preparing to attend the Lambda Awards. A friend, who also has a book nominated in the M/M Romance category, just pointed out an email I hadn't properly read, instructing me about acceptance speeches, where to sit, and asking if I'ld like to be photographed on the red carpet. Red carpet? Acceptance speeches? Which immediatly sparked a bout of hyperventilation.
This is without a doubt a dream come true for me, being nominated and attending the awards. I'd hoped for it later on in my career, never realizing it'd happen so soon. I still check the nominess list from time to time to make sure Settling the Score is still there, and that being nominated is not simply a sweet dream I'll soon wake up from.
Ya'll wish me luck!!! And thank you Lambda Literary!
