2019 Bloggers Choice Awards: Lone Star Literary Life
I’m thrilled to have placed in Lone Star Literary Life’s annual Bloggers Choice awards! First off: I tied for Runner-Up as Most Engaged Author, then Santa Claus Bank Robbery was shortlisted for Most Creative Premise, shortlisted for Best Texas Book, and tied for Runner-Up of Best Nonfiction, while Paranormal Texas won Best Fiction (which cracks me up because I did a TON of historic research for this book, and that is certainly NOT fictional!), was Runner-Up for Best Texas Book, and shortlisted for Best Paranormal. Phew! All this encouragement makes me want to write more books! :) (Click here for more info.)
