NIEA Awards & Giveaway


I was beyond excited when I opened my email yesterday to find out that MY LIFE AS A COUNTRY ALBUM had been selected as a finalist in the 2018 National Indie Excellence Awards in the Young Adult category. This book continues to surprise me with its appeal to a wide range of readers. Probably because it's difficult as an independently published author to really, truly feel like your work is up to par. Thank you to the committee who selected my book from all the other amazing books that were entered and thank you to all of you who continue to read this book and send me your kind thoughts. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude.

This book was entered before the new covers were adopted, and now I will always wonder if that made a difference to the committee.

You can check out some other amazing independently published books that were selected at the National Indie Excellence Awards site.



While I have you, I thought I'd also let you know how excited I am that people are already pre-ordering MY LIFE AS A ROCK ALBUM which is the 3rd book in the MY LIFE AS AN ALBUM series. The reviews from the Advanced Reviewers are starting to come in, and they are saying that Seth and PJ’s journey is something to savor. I wanted to jump for joy at some of the lovely comments in the reviews. Even the simplest reviews make my day. If you’d like to check out what they are saying, you can see them on Goodreads.

As a reminder, if you’ve already pre-ordered, don’t forget to ENTER THE GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a complete signed set of the series and the love letters that go with them. You have to enter the giveaway separate, as Amazon does not tell me who has pre-ordered.

Step 1 - Pre-order on Amazon

Step 2 - Enter Giveaway

See pre-order giveaway page for the official rules.
