Gracie Won!

Yesterday was one of those days—the sort of day in which I realize the book I’m working on will never be everything I once hoped it would be. It was the sort of day when sometimes I wonder if my writing time might be better spent cleaning the bedrooms, or painting the living room, or weeding and mulching the gardens before winter.

I wasn’t thinking of giving up writing—I don’t think that’s possible. But I thought it might be a good idea to dial it back a bit, think of it as a hobby rather than as a future career. Maybe I should back off and allow more time for all the things I’ve been ignoring.

And then, this happened. 2014-ContestWINNER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saving Gracie won the 2014 Mystery/Thriller Award from The Kindle Book Review!

The timing of this contest win couldn’t have been more perfect. It delivered a much-needed boost and a swift kick, just when I needed it most. So I’ll be leaving those bedrooms dirty and the gardens filled with weeds, and I’ll get back to work on my new book, The Girl with Green Hair, and it will be the best darn thing I’ve ever written.

So there. 😀

Thank you, thank you, thank you to The Kindle Book Review and Digital Book Today!
