Things that make me go mmmrrh ... | Geralyn Corcillo | A Slice of OrangeLast week, I blogged on a special day to introduce you to Arlen Black, the hero of my romantic comedy Queen of the Universe. He was one of 30 contestants up for Book Boyfriend 2017. I am blogging again today on a special day to announce …

Arlen won!!! ARLEN BLACK won the title of Book Boyfriend 2017!

 

At my very first RWA meeting over a decade ago, I won that month’s first chapter critique from the incomparable Susan Squires, and when they called my name in the meeting, I screamed out from the back of the room, “Oh, my God!”  It was my first meeting and I learned in later meetings that the drawing for 1st chapter critique is usually a bit more sedate. But I was EXCITED! And I was just as excited when I got the news about Arlen Monday morning. “Ron, Arlen won! Arlen won!!” In my exuberance, I spilled my coffee all over my cat, Debbie. I cleaned her up, but she kept her eye on me.

Thank you to you all! To everyone who voted for me, cheered me on, and everyone who’s been loving book boyfriends over the years. This award thrills me because I have been loving books and book boyfriends all my life, and to have written some books that others find delightful just makes me so happy! Who are some of your favorite book boyfriends? Nat Eaton? Captain Wentworth? Michael Moscovitz? Ranger? Mmmrrh …

    Congratulations Geralyn! That’s exciting. How are you celebrating?

  • Congratulations, Ger!

    • Geralyn Corcillo says:

      Thanks, Marianne! I don’t know what the vote tally was – maybe Arlen won by one vote – maybe Arlen won because of you 🙂

  • vickicrum says:

    Yahoo, Geralyn!!!!! That’s fantastic. Go Arlen!

    • Geralyn Corcillo says:

      Thanks, Vicki! I couldn’t believe it when Arlen won. He was up against some fierce competition of wonderful guys! 🙂

  • Jen Apodaca says:

    Congratulations Geralyn!!

  • Veronica Jorge says:

    Congratulations, Geralyn. I can imagine your excitement; a little dizzy? In reply to your question about book boyfriends, I’m not sure I have one. But I just started reading your book, Drakenfall Christmas, so who knows if I find him there.

    • Veronica, Thanks – it is such a fun thrill. Especially because Arlen was up against such wonderful guys from such interesting stories. I hope you like Drakenfall Christmas – I wrote it to be a confection of pure feel-good delight. 🙂
