I hadn’t planned to do a post today because I am going to be away from the house most of the day. With the grandkids out of school, my days have gotten filled.
Something over at N.N. Light’s Book Heaven happened that I absolutely had to share!
This kind of recognition is the fuel that keeps me going. But to have this book make a finalist list means more than the world to me. It came out in January of this year, and of the three books in The White Rune Series, this one got the least attention and reviews. I suppose it was the middle child syndrome. However, when I received a low-rated review for it from InD’Tale Magazine, my spirits sank. Perhaps I hadn’t done the story justice. Every doubt a writer can have crept in. So, you can understand why this accolade has me doing a happy dance.
When Vann Noble first showed up in Ghostly Interference, I knew I needed to tell his story. I wrote Jagged Feathers to give this soldier some happiness in his life. He’d been through so much and was completely alone, except for his faithful canine, Champion. I also wanted to pull from my first-hand experience with someone losing a limb, as my late husband was an amputee. I knew, up close and personal, the challenges Vann would face, especially in daring to have an intimate relationship with a woman. But Nakina Bird had her flaws too. And together, they worked through the obstacles.
Now you can see why I am celebrating! This was a story that came straight from my heart.
For those of you who have picked up Jagged Feathers, and especially to those who have read and reviewed it, THANK YOU!!! If you haven’t picked it up yet, and it interests you, just click on the book title to purchase.
