I am so thankful to the Heartsong Presents Christian Romance Bookclub. I don’t accept compliments, congratulations or accolades easily. I feel I haven’t earned them. My writing journey is no exception. For everything I have had published I can give you a reason–I knew someone, the magazine had to have a filler, my ebook publishers were exploring the world of Christian Fiction and took a chance…the list goes on.
Then last week I opened an email from my agent congratulating me. Why? I didn’t know!
Then another author, Vickie Mcdonough emailed me this.
The 17th Annual Heartsong Awards were listed on The Edit Cafe. I did not even know there was such a thing. I have been voted as one of the favorite new authors! I am stunned. I can’t find a reason why, other than perhaps God is telling me, see you do have a gift, told you so. He has a sense of humor you know.
So lovely Heartsong Readers, I accept your award humbly and with the acknowledgment that without my critique partners,Julie Lessman, Jen Tizai, and Jennifer Cary, an amazing agent, and editors and the Heartsong team there wouldn’t be a book for anyone to read. And above all thank you God.
