Global eBook Awards

I'm happy to announce that my YA Historical Fiction, Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines, has been nominated for the Dan Poynter's Global eBook Awards.

While having votes and comments isn't supposed to make a difference in the judging, (they'll base the winners on the book), I would appreciate comments and your votes. If you have a spare minute, please stop by the Contest Site and say "Hi." You'll also see 5 little e letters at the top, on the left side. When you hold your pointer over the e on the right it says: "You gotta read this one." I've been leaving comments on all my friends pages, and I'm discovering some new stories that sound interesting.

Thanks, all. You're the best. If any of you are entered, please let me know, and I'll be there in a flash.

Then, in my mail box this morning, I found more good news. And the way this year has been going, I really needed my spirits lifted. My book has also been named a Finalist in the Novella category of the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. At first I thought it was a mistake because I entered the teen division. However, the letter said they sometimes put a book in the category they feel it's better suited for. It is short, so I'm happy.

Oh, and I'm even invited to attend an awards reception at the Plaza Hotel in New York, (during BEA.) Now that would be a dream. Anyway, I'm sorry to run on so. Will get back to work.

Have a great week. Happy reading and writing.
