My book, Angel War, has been chosen as one of the twelve finalists for The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards for 2013 in Category 5, Books for Adults (fiction), I am very surprised and pleased to report. The Gold, Silver and Bronze medalists will be announced at Author.con in April, 2014. The main reason I entered my book for the awards is that I will get feedback from those who judged it in London and in Stockholm and reviews of it from them on Goodreads and Amazon. I never expected to be one of the finalists, so now I am very happy that I am. Available as a paperback since April, 2013, my book, Angel War, will soon be available as an E-book, too.
The Fair Majesty Of Folk At Peace, one of my poems, inspired by the life of King Alfred and rooted in my love of Anglo-Saxon verse, has been accepted for publication in a future issue of The Dawntreader, a quarterly poetry magazine, edited by Dawn Bauling and Ronnie Goodyer, and published by Indigo Dreams Publishing, I am happy to say. Searching For The Sangreal, another one of my poems, was published in the Summer 2013 issue of the same magazine. I just felt like sharing with you my good news while wishing you a belated Happy New Year for 2014.
