I am so excited! I just found out that Catherine’s Pascha was selected as a finalist in the “Children’s Religious” category of the 2015 USA Best Book Awards!
What are you supposed to say when your book gets an award? I want to dance and sing and shout! But in the back of my mind, I can hear my grandmother’s voice. She’s saying, “Don’t brag.”
Can I brag? Just a little?
Back when we were putting together the book trailer for Catherine’s Pascha, our friend who helped with the script wanted to say that it was from an award-winning author. Of course, I told him he couldn’t say that. I’ve won an award or two, long ago, for other kinds of writing. But I certainly wasn’t an award-winning author.
I am now!
You can get a copy of this award-winning book from Amazon or at our webstore. And if you happen to be in the neighborhood, you can pick up a copy at my favorite brick-and-mortar bookstore, A Good Book, in Sumner, Washington.
