Last week was pretty exciting for me. A year ago, I launched my debut young adult series with Full Fusion. On Wednesday, I found out that it is a finalist in the GDRWA Booksellers’ Best Awards, Young Adult category. Booksellers read the entries and decide which ones they think are the best. It’s a huge honor!
THEN, on Friday, I got word that Full Fusion is a finalist in the Readers Crown awards given by RomCon. These finalists are selected based on reader ratings throughout the year.
Peer recognition, which is the basis of many awards not just in publishing but in film and TV making and in the music industry, is a big deal. But it’s gratifying in a whole different way for readers and booksellers to mark my work as quality. So I’m incredibly grateful.
Congratulations and good luck to all the other wonderful authors in the competition! Click the links above to see what other books are finalists. Winners for both will be announced this summer.
