I know all my NaNoWriMo friends probably feel the same way, but boy, November sure got away from me!
I’ve been across the Atlantic twice, made appearances at three events, gave three lectures, did one performance, and wrapped up the Kickstarter campaign for the Steampunk anthologies since the last time I posted. I figured that was plenty for one update but then I got an amazing e-mail…
“We are pleased to announce that our judges of the 2019 PenCraft Awards for literary excellence voted your book, No Rest for the Wicked (Mistress of None Book 1) published by Black Rose Writing as our Gaslamp Fantasy 2019 1st Place Winner. Your book was originally nominated by AuthorsReading.com for consideration in the 2019 competition.
We want our PenCraft Awards to represent true book winners, and your book was truly one of them. Books that win our competition are not only examples of literary excellence but have also demonstrated a popularity with readers.”
Needless to say, I am over the moon about this news. There is an award banquet in January that I unfortunately have to miss, but bragging rights never expire.
If you want to see what all the hubbub is about, you can read the blurb or get your copy of No Rest for the Wicked in e-book, print, and audio formats. I’ve got some more big news right around the corner, so stay tuned!
