THIS JUST IN...
BUZZ GIRL SIMONE ELKELES is NOMINATED FOR A RITA!!!
Simone's excellent, award-winning and critically acclaimed book LEAVING PARADISE is up for a RITA! If you've never heard of the Ritas, they are given for the best published romance books of the year. You can read more about the awards at www.rwanational.org
I loved LEAVING PARADISE. It is simply my fave of all of Simone's books. I remember when I first met Simon back online in 2005 and then in person in Reno that summer at the romance conference. I fell in love with her! She is so warm and funny and driven. A great combination. I'm so proud of how far she's come.
So join me in recognizing Simone's AMAZING nomination! Way to go, Simone. We will be rooting for you in San Francisco this summer when the ceremony takes place. Let the dress shopping and speech-writing commence!
Buzz Girls Rock!

Incidentally, her favorite line from NCW is, "Dude, you can't be a werewolf!" because that was apparently the thing that cracked up her lovely HarperCollins editor from first-read. xxo!
