On a Roll…

What a week! I just received word that Love, Bill was named  Finalist in the Best New Nonfiction category of the 2017 Best Book Awards! The 2017 Best Book Awards brought in over 2,000 entries, one of the biggest years since starting this program in 2004. According to the contest organizers, by placing in this year’s awards, I have beat out 75% of my fellow entrants. WOW!

Love, Bill

And the Silver Medal Goes to…..

Thanks to everyone for their “Congratulations” and “Good Wishes” upon receiving the news that Love, Bill was awarded the Silver Medal for Nonfiction in the 2017 Arizona Literary Awards. It came in second out of 72 entries in my category! Needless to say, I am very thrilled and honored. As I said when I received the award, one of the things that I learned in writing the book was that Dad’s dream was to be a writer. One of my dreams was to “find” him. I think that both of our dreams have now come true!
