2012 Carol nominations
This is the tidy side of my office as it was just after I sent my third novel to my editor. This is scrupulously neat, compared to the messy side.
So, the third novel is in my editor’s hands, and my first one, When Sparrows Fall, has just been named as a finalist for the 2012 Carol award in the women’s fiction category. (Yay!)
The Carol Awards are named in honor of the gracious and lovely Carol Johnson, a pioneer in publishing Christian fiction. I’m very honored to be in the running for an award with her name on it. The winners will be announced in September at the American Christian Fiction Writers conference in Dallas.
Meanwhile, my second novel, A Stillness of Chimes, will come out on February 19. It’s already listed for pre-orders on CBD and Amazon. Notice the two sites show two different covers. We still don’t have a final decision on which cover art we’ll use. Which cover do you like best?
If you’re not already signed up for my sporadic but utterly sincere e-newsletter, you can sign up on my website. In the next issue I’ll answer some questions from readers, so I would love it if you would send me some questions here in the comments. Everyone who leaves a comment and/or question by next Monday, July 23, will be eligible for a drawing for a free copy of either When Sparrows Fall or A Stillness of Chimes once it’s available. If you’re not the commenting type, you can email me at the address on the website and still be entered in the drawing.
And now I’m off to celebrate the Carol nomination with a fresh pot of coffee. The office floor can continue being messy without any more help from me.
