I’m so appreciative and excited to have some good news to share with you: A couple of days ago, I was notified that my book, Once Upon a Mulberry Field, had received an Honorable Mention as a finalist in the Writer’s Digest 22nd International Self-Published Book Awards.
In this day and age, one hears a lot of talk about the importance for authors to “brand” themselves in a way that would differentiate them from the rest of the field. Since the early 1920’s, Writer’s Digest has firmly established its own international brand as the number one resource for the writers’ community, having published the first Writer’s Market manual in 1921, and then every year since. Over the decades, this annual publication has come to be known as “the bible for writers.”
I am very happy and thankful to have been chosen as a finalist in the Writer’s Digest 22nd International Self-Published Book Awards, one of the original and longest-running awards for DIY authors. As always, I wanted to share this great news with all of you, my friends and supporters. Your steadfast encouragement has given me the fortitude to begin the journey—and to keep pushing on with more confidence.
Once Upon a Mulberry Field has received warm response from people who have had a chance to check it out. Exposure is everything. I hope you will all continue to help me spread the word to introduce the book, and its message of healing and hope, to many more readers out there.
Thank you, and have a wonderful weekend!
