Another I-Spy RWA National Report from Jill Shalvis

Hi there, your RWA reporter Jill Shalvis here. Whew, lots of stuff going on. Namely, yours truly winning the National Reader's Choice Award for best single title, SEEING RED. I'm so excited and honored I can hardly speak, and I think I might have broken out into hives when I had to go up to the podium to accept my award. See in the picture? Me on the right? The blush? Believe me, even my ears were burning.

I'll have more pics up on my blog, including some of the lovely bloggers who visited me at the literacy signing, along with more pics of editors and authors. Please come visit and leave your kingdom of lurkdom and say hey!!

Hugs from Atlanta, Jill Shalvis

P.S. Oh and I nearly forgot ... I'll be drawing five names from today's commentors on my blog, all of whom will win a book from my backlist ...
