For anyone who has read Shadows..
Or who knows me..
.. knows that this is exciting news for me… Not because I need anyone to tell me that “Shadows” is a great novel.. I am confident in my novel because it took on a life of its own as I wrote it..
And because everyone who reads it.. Writes me to say how they can’t put it down… Even people who don’t read Fiction.. Or Historical novels..
So .. no.. I don’t need an award to know my novel is good.. Or to know the sequel (Road Home) will be a hit..
But it is exciting for me because being a Finalist will get the word out there that Shadows exists. Because people can’t buy something they don’t know about…
So congratulations Shadows!!!
You now have a red carpet.. Now we can get out there and shine…
