Come Back Early Today Wins a Fourth Award!

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Come Back Early Today has just won a fourth award. It is a finalist in the Indie Excellence Awards, for independently published books. This award is added to the list of three other awards: The Santa Fe Writers Project Literary Awards, The Eric Hoffer Awards (for first-time authors), and the Peoples Choice awards.

When I wrote the book I didn’t expect to win anything, so this is very gratifying!


Come Back Early Today Has Become an Award-Winning Book

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

I am very humbled by the fact that Come Back Early Today has become an award-winning book that has placed four times in three writing competitions.

It is a Santa Fe Writers Project Literary Awards finalist and an Eric Hoffer First Horizons Award finalist. The First Horizons award is for first-time authors.

More recently I excerpted two stories from the book and rewrote them to be stand-alone pieces, then I submitted both of themĀ  the Writers-Editors Network International Writing Competition. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that both stories were given honorable mention status!
