Hi friends! I hope everyone is staying warm in the crazy winter weather we're having in so many areas of the world! After three days of cancellations last week and a delay on Monday, I'm trying to gear up for more predicted snow tomorrow. Is it spring yet?? :)
But as I wait for things outside to thaw, I have some exciting news in my writing life! I am thrilled beyond belief to announce that Common was included on the INSPY longlist for Debut Fiction!!! Eeeeeeeek!! Books have to be nominated by readers in order to be considered, so I have all of YOU to thank for this honor and I'm so incredibly grateful. I'm both awed and humbled to see my little story alongside books by so many authors I look up to and admire. THANK YOU!!!
I'm also excited to share that Common is on the ballot for the Christian Indie Awards! I would SO appreciate it (to the point of sending lots of virtual hugs and chocolate!) if you would consider stopping by to give Common your vote. The voting form is here - you'll find Common in the Young Adult category. Once again, THANK YOU!!! My readers are amazing, and I want you all to know that I don't take that for granted! In fact, stay tuned next week because I'm planning a giveaway to celebrate Common's birthday on February 14th - I'll see you then!
