And YIPPEEEE again! It is PARTAY TIME in Desperateland!
Why? Because a few days ago yours truly got an email from Writers' Digest Magazine. My book "Breakfast with the Pope" won First Prize in this year's Self-Published Book Awards. It's in the "Life Stories" category. I am sooo happy!
Here's the Amazon link:
And here's my website:
If any of you out there have ever self-published a book, you know what a roller coaster the adventure is. When BWP came out I made the rounds of Catholic bookstores here in the Twin Cities, asking if they'd please carry my book. I will never forget how one bookstore owner declined to carry it because she found some of the material "unsuitable for my store." Go figure. Like I said, it's an adventure.
Writers' Digest won't be publishing the list of winners until late February, but hey said I could talk about it on social media all I want. So I'm talking.
Oh- and Bookstore Owner who called my book "unsuitable?"
