Breaking News! IRDA winner :)
OMG I just found our I won an award!
I was announced as the winner of the IndieReader Discovery Award for Young Adult!
They announced all the winners at BEA yesterday!
The judges were Kirkus Review, IndieReader, Huffington Post, editors at S&S and Harper Collins, agents at ICM and more.
Congrads to all the indie winners!
Holy crapola! I'm freakin' out/dying right now.
To think where I was this time last year parting with my agent, rejected by publishers, couldn't write, and had no hopes of a future in publishing, this is friggin' awesome!!!!!! Amaze-balls!
I get pretty stickers and a book feature on IndieReader. I also get to be included in some press announcements as well as consideration by a literary agency.
I'm not expecting anything major to come out of this.
But it is just another confirmation I am on the right path, especially at a time where I was starting to question it again.
Keep going after your dreams. No one can't stop you but yourself !
Just keep swimming....just keep swimming!
Thanks to everyone - again - for your support! It means everything.
