Lightning strikes twice in the same place.

Well, in the same week, anyway. The Winter Lodge was named one of the best books of the year by Publishers Weekly. Then Amazon listed it at #1 on the Best of Romance list.
This is a particular honor because The Winter Lodge was a “monster” book–one that drove me nuts, writing it. (For those of you who’ve read it, I’m talking about Jenny’s romantic history.) The emotions were hard in that book, and the deadline was insane. But I’m not complaining. Garrison Keillor reminds us that writing, as a job, is the opposite of hard:

“The truth, young people, is that writing is no more difficult than building a house, and the only good reason to complain is to discourage younger and more talented writers from climbing on the gravy train and pushing you off.”

All’s well that ends well. Thanks to PW and Amazon!

  1. Hey, congratulations! (yes, I read Holly’s blog)
    Always nice to see people named Susan doing well in the world. For a long time there, I was convinced that Sigourney Weaver had dumped her own Susan because she knew something my parents didn’t.

  2. Yippee, Susan! You must be on top of the world. Enjoy the view! You deserve it!
    I am honored to call you “Friend” :o))))
    Congrats!
