So humbled to have won in the Historical Fiction category of the Colorado Book Awards! Here I am standing awkwardly among some very good writers (just behind a Pulitzer Prize winner, in fact!).
The other finalists in my category, The Circle of Na’mow and A Quilt for Christmas, were certainly just as deserving of the award. Congratulations to Anna McDermott, Gretchen Wiegand, and Sandra Dallas for their nominations.
I was also captivated by many of the other finalists and winners, including Mark Stevens’s mystery Trapline and Christopher Merkner’s short story collection The Rise & Fall of the Scandamerican Domestic. Check them out!
I feel very grateful to have the support of my fellow authors at Wooden Stake, including Jonna Gjevre and Jeff Chacon. Thanks guys. I owe you a drink.
Join me, Jonna Gjevre, and a bunch of other people who write stuff this weekend at the Arapahoe Library Open House! We can write stuff, like our names, on other stuff we wrote, like our books, if you want. Saturday at 2pm, Southglenn Library, University & Arapahoe.
Come join me, Jeff Chacon and Jonna Gjevre at the BookBar in Denver to celebrate our novels and Wooden Stake Press!
