BIG announcement today! First up The Book of Lost Souls, (aka the Little Book That Could), does it again: it’s the eFestival of Words winner for the category Best Young Adult. The contest started back in the spring when readers submitted their picks for best in each category. I had no idea that The Book of Lost Souls had been nominated, so imagine my surprise when I learned that it made it to the semi-finals. There were a lot of great books on the list, one of which has gone on to garner appraise and a book deal in the traditional world.
Summer rolled around, and I just sort of figured that was it. The semi-finals. Not too bad! But then, a fellow writer told me I’d made it to the finals. What I never dreamed could happen, happened today. The Book of Lost Souls took first place!
But, the awards don’t stop there. Indie Chicks – 25 Women, 25 Personal Stories also took first place for Best Anthology.
I’m over the moon. Totally and completely over the moon.
