Today, I’m kind of stunned.

I never thought my first novel, Different, would win an award. That’s bit of a long shot for a first-time author.

I just learned that out of thousands of nominations from all over the world, Different was awarded “Best Contemporary Fiction” by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association. That makes for first place awards, for second and third place awards, and a finalist for two other words.

If you haven’t read Different yet, you’ll love it.

If you’ve already read it, then you know exactly what I’ talking about. You can learn more about it, or get it on Amazon at

Thanks for celebrating with me last week when I announced finishing and getting multiple agent interest in my second book, making right.

Are you up for another celebration?
