Blindsided by Awards
On June 14th, 2019 books 2 and 3 of my Campground Mystery Series both won at THE WORD AWARDS Gala in Hamilton, Ontario: LAKE OF THE CROSS for Contemporary Suspense and STARRY LAKE for Romance/Historical.
I didn't see it coming. Of course, deep inside every author longs to have their work recognized. But there were some fine-sounding titles shortlisted along with mine. Besides, I was still basking in last year's win for Best Suspense of 2017 for the first novel in the series, STORMY LAKE. What were the chances that I'd actually win again? And again?
My editor, Sara Davison deserves much credit. Her excellent advice polished all three stories and made them shine.
But most importantly I thank God, for without Him none of this would be possible. His love has been exceedingly, abundantly above all that I could have hoped for or imagined.
