Lyn Takes a Bow or Should that be a Curtsey?
I want you to know that Pamela Tracy told me to BRAG about myself. Now I'm not perfect but I do know Christians are never supposed to BRAG about themselves. However this is a blog and on this blog we celebrate Love Inspired romance and the authors and the readers. So I guess it's okay to take a bow, curtsey, or blow my own horn.
As Pamela has posted to the right, I won the Carol Award for Short Historical in this year's American Fiction Writers published award, named for Carol Johnson. (I wrote about that on the 22nd.)
This win was an encouragement to me. I will have written and published 36 books as of this October. I have finaled in several (not many) contests. But I hadn't won since 2001. That's a long time!
So I don't think I'll get the big head. :-) Especially since I broke part of my plaque for the award on the way home. Why do these things happen to me? (I have managed to glue the little piece back on!)
I'm really happy that my heroine Mercy and her hero Lon touched hearts in Her Healing Ways, the final book in my Gabriel Sisters series.
Here's a list of the other winners. You might like their books! Have you read any by any of the other winners?
