“The Blood” is a Multi-Category Winner!!

Such an exciting event on Saturday at the Colorado Independent Publishers Association’s EVVY 20th Annual Awards. My book “The Blood: The Stone’s Blade, #1” was nominated in four categories of the awards. I am delighted to share with you that I took third place in Science Fiction and third place in Fantasy. The cover design received a merit award.

3rd Place EVVY Award for Fantasy

It is an unexpected honor. Ones I have perhaps hoped for but have difficulty believing that any one outside of immediate family or close friends really honestly enjoys the stories I write. Especially since this is my first novel length work. My editor, Melanie Mulhall, my proofreader, Helena Mariposa, and my cover & interior designer, Nathan Fisher, all have told me I have something special to offer readers with the stories of Ani, Kela, Taryn, and Renloret (and perhaps others).
