I'll keep everyone posted on this news.
The second bit of news, equally exciting, is that Captives is a finalist for the 2016 Selah Awards in the Women's Contemporary category. I am joined by extraordinary writers, Marie Wells Coutu for her novel, Thirsting for More, and Cynthia Ruchti and her novel, As Waters Gone By.
Just last year I was sitting in the Selah Awards banquet at the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers' Conference thinking what a wonderful honor to be nominated and/or receive a Selah Award. Last Wednesday, I was shocked to open my email and see a message of Congratulations announcing Captives as a finalist. This was an unexpected blessing, indeed!
More on both of these announcements in the near future.
Next weekend I will be attending the conference in North Carolina, and I am excited to see what God does there in terms of bringing new people into my life, teaching me tools for writing and marketing, and reminding me of His spiritual truths.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
