I was thrilled to find out yesterday that my second novel, The Words between Us, is a finalist for the 2020 Christy Award.
Last year, We Hope for Better Things was a finalist as well. And a couple weeks ago We Hope for Better Things won the 2020 Star Award from the Women’s Fiction Writers Association in both the debut and general categories.
So it has been an exciting couple of weeks!
But probably the most exciting thing? I don’t have to buy a new furnace.
Awards for a job well done are a great boost to the ego (and hopefully to sales as well) but when it comes to endorphins and good feelings coursing through your body, nothing beats being told that you will not have to shell out $4,000-$6,000 dollars just yet.
I’m going into the weekend warm and toasty, inside and out.
