I wanted to take a moment to say Thank You, Truly, Thank You from my Heart
This is not a post about me blowing my own horn or singing my own accolades, I promise. It’s me taking the very Important time to Realize and Appreciate all the blessings that have come my way in just one year.
A month or so back I posted an invitation to vote for Dark Fey The Reviled, which was up for commendation through Golden Box Books Publishing Reader’s Choice Award. Yesterday I was excited and thoroughly delighted to learn that, with YOUR help and Kind votes, The Reviled received that award and has been advanced to the finalist stage.
This award has truly made me Pause to take stock of all that has happened in this past year. So often Blessings come along and we take them for granted, as well as those persons who helped make them possible. So I wanted to take this opportunity to Thank YOU, as well as the Source of All Blessings, for every Amazing and Joyfully tearful moment I have enjoyed this year.
In March my life-long Dream of being published came true when I was accepted by Creativia Publications. Both book covers got a facelift and throughout the year sales have increased beyond my expectations.
Throughout the year, Dark Fey and I have been featured on numerous websites and blogs, including interviews by notable authors Stevie Turner and Lit World Interviews; the well-known Novel Writing Festival; Interview and Book Review by Author Lisa Haselston; Character Focus/Spotlights by Author Brittany Willows as well as Roari Benjamin; and Interviews with notable author Aurora Jean Alexander
In April I was accpeted into the Poetry Society of America
In May Dark Fey The Reviled attained a 5-Star Reader’s Favorite Review and Recommendation
In June Dark Fey Standing In Shadows attained a 5-Star Reader’s Favorite Review and Recommendation
In June I was also accepted as a contributing author by My Trending Stories.com
In August Dark Fey The Reviled won the 2016 New Apple Literary Book Award for Excellence in Fantasy
and Throughout the year Dark Fey The Reviled, as well as Standing In Shadows have gained marvelous 4 and 5 Star reviews on Amazon.
To say that I am Thankful, Grateful, Appreciative and Overwhelmed would be an understatement proportionate to saying the Antarctic is a tropical climate, but not taking time to SAY Thank You would be even more grievous, at least in my book(nvolume).
