MIRA Monday: Awards Season Begins

By Leonore Waldrip, Assistant Editor

‘Tis the season…for awards! That’s right, for once, we aren’t talking about the holidays. It may be a bit too early to start our Oscar nomination predictions, but as 2013 winds down, the “best of” lists start rolling in. It’s been a banner year for Harlequin MIRA—from first time authors debuting on bestseller lists to skilled veterans achieving careers highs and everything in between— and we couldn’t be more proud. So much like your sister in Florida who sends you a holiday letter (shoot, we slipped) bragging about her kids every December, kindly indulge us for a moment while we congratulate the MIRA authors who’ve made Kirkus and Library Journal Best of 2013 lists and those who’ve been nominated for Reviewers’ Choice Awards by RT.

Please join us in giving a warm round of applause to both the authors recognized so far and the rest of the incredible authors we’ve been honored to work with this year!

Read on for the amazing achievements and tell us—what’s on your Best of 2013 list?
