Best Saturday in Forever!
Hi everyone! I just had to share this amazing thing that happened to me today with all of you. And ask you to please take a moment to go vote, if not for me, for any of the other amazing authors that made this nomination list. So this is how it happened. I’m on Facebook and I'm cruising through the posts in the amazing Amy Harmon's fan group (Amy's Harmonies). She is one of my favorite authors of all time. She’s so diverse in what she can write from historical fiction to young adult to fantasy to contemporary romance… Wait, I’m getting sidetracked. Back to where I was scrolling through her group posts, and I see one that says her fabulous book, THE SMALLEST PART, has been nominated in the 7th Annual UTOPiA Awards for Contemporary Book of the Year. So, of course I go out to vote (it's a public vote) because, like I said, she’s one of my favorite authors...
AND OMG!!! There below Amy's book is…….
MY LIFE AS A POP ALBUM by LJ Evans
I just stared at it for what felt like a million minutes.... Because, wait… was that MY BOOK!?????
I don't know how I got on this nomination list. But I want to cry with happiness and joy. I am so humbled to even be included here with so many incredible authors that I respect. And I know I sound all name droppy and all, but it's just because I'm overwhelmed to be here with these writers..... I hope that all of you go vote. You can only vote once, and of course I'm conflicted because I love Amy Harmon so very much, but there is my book. My book!!! With an Amy Harmon book. Please excuse the shock..... It will wear off. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to whoever nominated me for this crazy amazing honor and UTOPiAcon for including me. Feeling blessed & humbled & excited. Thank you for letting me share my joyful news with you. I hope you have an amazing rest of your weekend.
HAPPY READING! LJ Evans
