I’m a finalist for the 2015 Red City Review Book Awards!
I mentioned earlier this year that I submitted The Journals of Bob Drifter under the Science Fiction Fantasy category of the Red City Review book awards. I just found out I’m a finalist. Each category has five, and Red City Review selected another five honorable mentions in addition to the other four finalists. See the announcement here.
I want to start by offering my most heartfelt congratulations to: Craig Giles, author of “The Darkness of Strangers;” Andrea Perno, author of “Remotely Unplugged;” Richard Perkins, author of “Bones of the Emperor;” and J.W. Lolite, author of “Circumstellar.” They are the other finalists for the category. This is my first book, and this was the first contest I’ve submitted my book for. I express how excited I am, and I hope you are as well. Congratulations for writing what Red City Review feels are the top five science fiction/fantasy books of the year.
The grand-prize winner and five, first-prize winners are scheduled to be announced Dec. 1.
I’m just so honored to receive this news. I submitted the book hoping for a kind review, and got one of the most kind reviews I’ve read so far. Now this. I’m stunned and motivated to keep working on this silly little dream of mine.
