Scared Is a Finalist for a Christy Award

Ready for the big news I promised to announce on Friday? My first novel, Scared, has been nominated for CBA's Christy Award. I never expected this, so obviously, this is very exciting for me. I'm also in the company of several good friends have been nominated in other categories who I love and respect: Mary DeMuth and Lisa Samson.

Here's a link to the Christy Award site in case you're interested in the details of the award. Basically, the best Fiction books are chosen in different categories. There are three finalists, one winner. Scared is nominated in the "First Novel Category." Thanks for your support of this book. I am thankful and humbled!

Congratulations! I MUST pick up a copy of your book now. From what I can tell, our whole category is issue driven. Jennifer’s deals with racism and is historical. Mine a contemporary journey through infidelity and the struggle to forgive. And yours is sex-trafficking …Wow! How cool to be among such great first novelists. :) Looking forward to meeting you in St. Louis!
