Two Bits of Exciting News



Yes, I’m celebrating! Flight of the Spark won a silver medal for YA Epic Fantasy in the Readers’ Favorite contest. Thrilled and delighted doesn’t seem to cover it.

I’m grateful for the support from my critiquers, beta readers, editors, proofreaders, everyone who read and reviewed the book, or just offered a word of encouragement along the way. This wouldn’t have happened without your help.

This was a surprise to me for a lot of reasons, not the least that I didn’t expect Flight of the Spark to win. Meanwhile, Flicker of the Flame, which I thought was the better book, didn’t even place.

Which is why they call writing an art, I suppose.

In honor of the win, I of course had to celebrate with chocolate.

And in other news…

On Tuesday, September 14 I’ll be a guest on the Author’s Porch podcast. The episode will be live streamed at 7:00 central time, but if you miss it, the podcast can be found on many platforms for you listening pleasure.

Hope you can tune it to hear the conversation!
