My novel “Evangeline’s Miracle” has made it to the finals in the Florida Writer’s Association (over 1300 members) annual conference Royal Palm Literary Award Competition! I will not know until the evening of the award ceremony on October 17, 2015, if EM has actually won or not. But for now, I am happy that it has made it this far.
I have been here before with EM. My novel has made it to the finals only to trip over that last step, so I am understandably hesitant to get really ginned up over this. I ask myself, should I publicize like crazy and let everyone know this? Or keep it low key until I know for sure?
Pahhh! Not publicize? I may be hesitant, but I’m not stupid! Please wish me luck, and if you ever find yourself where I am, don’t listen to your own doubts. Go for it! Unleash the “beast” and let all your friends, readers, family, followers know. Give them the chance to celebrate with you! Here is my badge of honor!
