Chaucer Award Finalist and Audio Book Update

Chaucer-Awards-2015Happy holidays, all! I’ve been a little scarce due to being crazy busy getting three books ready for publication, spending an epic 3 days in Chicago saying farewell to my favorite band of 18 years (Kill Hannah) and you know, the holidays. Oh and the day job.

Anyway, I’m thrilled to announce that Madame Presidentess is a finalist in the 2015 Chaucer Awards for Historical Fiction! I entered it as a manuscript since it’s not published yet. I am so honored! There is so much more I still plan to do to that book before it comes out in July, so to be a finalist already is such a mind-blowing thing. Here’s the official announcement.

I also entered Daughter of Destiny (still then called Guinevere of Northgallis), and since they are still processing final scores, there’s a chance that one may final as well.

Audio book update: It may be a week or so after January 1 when the audio book of Daughter of Destiny comes out. It’s done but we’ve had some delays on the back end due to ACX’s odd payment process for SAG actors (which my narrator is) and their long final approval process. I will let you know when I know more, but wanted you to be prepared in case that’s the format you are wanting to purchase.

PS – If you want to go through Audible and haven’t made your first purchase through them, please consider doing so. I get a special reward every time someone makes their first purchase on one of my books.

More updates to come as I know about them over the next week as we count down to publication day. This is going to be interesting. As Kill Hannah says in the song “Paper Dolls”, “Start the countdown…4, 3, 2, 1, 0.”
