Good news, dear readers! Desert Nights won an honorable mention in the general fiction category of the 2015 Hollywood Book Festival! Hooray!
I don’t think to enter books into festivals or contests very much, as I tend to think of shorter pieces as competition-type material, but this submission paid off. So indie-authors: don’t forget to enter your book into festivals and competitions. It’s a great advertisement and publicity opportunity, and great to drop into your credentials when proposing your next book to a publisher or agent.
Check out all the winners of the 10th annual Hollywood Book Festival, and stay tuned for updates on my next book. I just finished draft one today (means I might be ready to publish about a year from now. YES revision takes a year. I’m meticulous that way)!
Til next time, happy reading!
