Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards

Well, the fun had to come to an end.

They announced the Top Three finalists in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards today, and THE PILGRIM GLASS wasn't one of them.

But you know? That's OK. Because I made the Top 100 out of 10,000 entries, and that's pretty danged good. And even better? The amazing support and love you all showed from the beginning: whether it was writing a review of my entry, or sending me a sweet email, you've all been so kind and so awesome, and I am grateful and humbled.

So, onward and upward. Thanks again for your support, and I'll let you know what (if anything) happens next.

Also? Please take some time to check out the extended excerpts and reviews of the three finalists at . I really enjoyed STUFF OF LEGENDS and IN MALICE, QUITE CLOSE, so it will be pretty hard to choose between those two!

    Sorry you didn't make the top 3. It's awesome you were in the top 100, clearly an affirmation of your talent.

  3. Thanks, you guys! It's been a rollercoaster, but I love rollercoasters :) It's been a hoot seeing my book come up in Amazon searches!

  4. it was a great contest and I'm looking forward to reading the excerpts... so glad there's a variety from which to choose, genre-wise... :)))

    great folks made it so fun, this means you! :)))

  5. Top 100 out of 10,000 is still very impressive. Nothing to be ashamed of. Congrats! Keep plugging away.
