Desert Nights wins an Honorable Mention in Hollywood Book Festival

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 annualĀ 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!
