What a year this has been! 2010 was my first full year with a novel out in paperback. After numerous book signings, author appearances, book club meetings, and three trips out of state to promote the book, things are moving forward with Radium Halos.
The romantic comedy, Celebrities for Breakfast continues to find new readers, and may soon also be available in paperback. With two foreign entities (Turkey and Korea) interested in both novels, anything can happen!
Something new for 2011: My first newsworthy honor of the year:
Radium Halos was selected as the #2 Top Drama pick for Red Adept’s Kindle Reviews Annual Indie Awards 2010 http://redadeptreviews.com/?p=4127 (Scroll down).
Nice to wake up to this recognition first thing on January 1!
Also, I decided last week I would enter one of my previous, unpublished novels in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. I pulled out and dusted off a novel I hadn’t read in a long time, and discovered with a little work, it could be a contender. Sadly, once I got a little deeper into the editing, it became clear I would never make the contest deadline. So, be looking for my entry next year for the ABNA!
Wishing everyone a joyous, happy, and healthy new year!
