Can you imagine my surprise when I opened the voting ballot for the UTOPiA Awards, scrolled down, and found my name? Freaking awesome!
Last year, I attended my first UtopYA Con (now renamed to UTOPiA Con) with the mindset that I’d be networking for my blog. I took the manuscript for Regress as an after thought. I was blessed to have two great roommates, one of them an author. She read a little of it and thought I had something marketable. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine my little idea, my thoughts would get nominated.
Authors are hard workers. We keep long hours, mostly in solitude. Our families endure our manic moments and our self-doubts. They handle our frustrations. A lot of times there’s very little to show for all our efforts. Being nominated is such a huge honor. Today starts a two-week period of public voting. Please go to the site and choose your favorites.
From all of us authors (and editors, cover designers, formatters, etc.)…. THANK YOU!
