It's been a few days now since the announcement on iheartpresents, and a strange few at that.
It's certainly made for uncomfortable reading to see good people & HMB flamed unnecessarily ... maybe it's just that i'm a newcomer to the romance writing community and probably don't have a full grip on the politics of it yet.
I have to say though that I have been personally touched by how kind and generous everyone's been to me, but I feel very saddened for Susanna & Maggie. I really hope that they both can still take pleasure in their achievements, although I expect it must have tarnished things greatly for them.
Hopefully the troubled waters will be calmed later, and business as usual will resume.
