Award Finalist!

Last week I learned that The Unraveling of Abby Settel is a finalist for the Reader Views 2011 Literary Awards, in the Adult General Fiction/Novel category!

I am thrilled that my first novel has been commended in this way. To quote the Reader Views website: “The annual literary awards honor writers who self-publish or have their books published by a small press or independent book publisher.” My book qualified because its publisher, Turquoise Morning Press, is a small, independent book publisher.

Reader Views posted a wonderful review of the book in November 2011, and that in itself delighted me. So imagine how excited I was last Thursday, when I received an email telling me that the book was a finalist for the 2011 awards!

Obviously, I hope The Unraveling of Abby Settel wins. But even if it doesn’t, placing as a finalist is a recognition that I never dared hope for.

The winners list will be completed sometime after March 8th, and announced in the Reader Views Newsletter on March 12th.

Keep your fingers crossed!
