I was honored to take part in the Rainbow Awards this year as a member of the jury, and I read a really interested mix of books as part of that job. (And the funny thing is that I’ve done this twice now, and each time it was one of the books that I least expected that wound up being really impressing me. That’s one of the wonderful things about these awards; because of the way the judging is done, a number of books that would have slid under the radar otherwise can get recognition.)

That said, I was delightfully surprised to see that Blind Items won honorable mention in the One Perfect Rate category. This means that one of the (several) judges who read the book for the awards gave it a very high rating, and that is pretty darned awesome. I was so genuinely surprised to see my name on that list, I almost didn’t believe it. And there were so many truly wonderful books entered this year!

The good news for you is that I got word that Dreamspinner will be offering 20% off all Rainbow Award winners starting today, through December 16th, so now’s your chance to snag the book if you haven’t read it already. (There are lots of other great Dreamspinner books that won awards, too.)

Check out all the winners. Congratulations to all the authors who won!
