Julia was delighted to discover that WAIF is one of the October releases AAR staffers Blythe and Ellen are “eagerly awaiting.” Also on the list are books by favorite authors Carolyn Jewel, Mary Balogh, and Sharon Sala as well as releases by new author Tessa Dare. Plus a new historical novel about much-maligned Catherine Howard, Henry VIII’s “beheaded wife No. 2,” called THE QUEEN’S MISTAKE and written by veteran historical author Diane Haeger. Ah, if only one could do without sleep and use the time for reading!

More good news from All About Romance! The interim results of their Annual Readers Poll were posted yesterday and my July book, A MOST UNCONVENTIONAL MATCH, made the list as one of the Best Category Romances for 2008. Of course, no guarantee MATCH will make the final list, but one thing I’ve learned in this often ego-bashing business: celebrate every success. So I’m celebrating!

Blythe Barnhill, reviewer for the website All About Romance, chose Julia’s July release, A MOST UNCONVENTIONAL MATCH, as runner-up for Best Historical Romance of 2008. Said Barnhill, “Year after year, Julia Justiss quietly turns out some of the best books around. This one had an unforgettable hero and a very sweet romance.” Thanks so much, Blythe!
