In spite of the broiling weather and dried up ponds and no baby fawns that I've seen, I have many things to be thankful for. My family, my nice cool house, and friends, both Online and in person. Today, I'm happy to share the latest with you. Here's a picture of the medal for being a finalist in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. It's heavy enough to put a crick in the neck, if I wore it for long. The brochure is the one they made and distributed at BEA this year. It contains all the Winners and Finalists.
A reminder too: My contest for a signed copy of Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines ends on July 29. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment and tell if you ever wore a crinoline or hoop skirt and what it was like. Also, if you have a copy of Caves and want a sticker for the cover just let me know where to send it.
Have a nice weekend. I'm determined to finish polishing my Orphan Train story and send it back to the publisher. This story is dear to my heart.
Happy Reading and Writing.
