A Special Kind of Courage has been entered into the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards under the YA Fiction category. Their 7th contest, the grand prize and four 1st prizes are publishing contracts with advances. Winners will be notified in July after several rounds of judging and reviews. I’ll post when excerpts go up for public review so you can get involved.
Courage is also being entered into the Florida Authors and Publishers Association’s (FAPA) 2014 National FAPA President’s Awards in the YA Fiction category. Winners will be announced the first week of July and honored at a banquet in August.
Barbara and I have also confirmed to share a pavillion for the Authors in the Park event in Mount Dora, FL on March 29th. Barbara will have copies of Courage, and possibly The Sweet Running Filly and A Horse Called Bonnie, at the event. I will keep you posted, but set the date aside to come out and meet Barbara. You can pick up a free bookmark, too!
