You know that whole “It’s an honor to be nominated” thing? That’s this. It’s an honor to be nominated. I am thrilled they picked me. This is a wonderful thing. But, to be honest, I would be beyond stoked to win.
Sapphire Ice has been nominated for the July Fiction book of the month at The Book Club Network.
This is what the person who nominated Sapphire Ice said:
I recently read Sapphire Ice by Hallee Bridgeman and I think it would be a great book for the July book of the month in fiction. I’ve often read books where a wealthy man falls for an unwealthy woman, but often they really didn’t seem plausible. However, I think Hallee did a great job with this theme in the book. The characters are very realistic and the more you read, the more you realize the depth of the characters when you begin to learn their backgrounds and how they came to be where they are today. There’s humor, romance, and also some excellent lessons the reader can learn about growing in a relationship with Christ and how that fits into everyday life. I liked this book so much, I was thrilled to learn that it was the first book in The Jewel Trilogy and I didn’t have to wait for the other two books to be published!! Read them ALL! They are all so good!
What an amazing nomination!
The finalists in this round will then be read and judged by a group of professionals in the industry to determine the very best in indie and small published books of 2012. They will then be awarded the prestigious RONE award, itself, at the formal ceremonies, August 9th, at the Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. If I final, Gregg and I are already talking about attending the Romance Novel Convention in Las Vegas in order to attend the awards ceremonies (and will likely arrange a book signing while we’re there!)
