Last night the 24th annual Lambda Literary Award Ceremony was held in NYC, and I just found out that two authors, from two different publishers I work with, won in their respective categories.
Debra Hyde won best in lesbian erotica for "The Story of L," published by Ravenousromance.com.
And Dirk Vanden won best in gay erotica for "All Together," published by Loveyoudivine.com.
I've been with both publishers for a long time (with Ravenous since they started) and I've seen the publishers and the authors work hard to produce good books for readers. If only one of them had won I would have been thrilled. But to see TWO win on the same night is freaking awesome!!
The road hasn't always been easy. But it's nice to see this kind of recognition. And I couldn't be more thrilled for the authors and the publishers.
