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.
Very happy to announce Song of the Jayhawk is a finalist in the Historical Fiction category of the Colorado Book Awards! Just being on the same page as some of these other writers is a privilege I’ll not soon forget.
