eFestival of Words: Winners Announced

Today the winners were announced of the

eFestival of Words – Best of the Independent eBook Awards

The nominations were by peers, meaning people somehow connected with writing and/or publishing. The vote was open for the public.
There has been, according to the organizers, a last-minute flurry of votes.

Call me greedy, but some kind soul nominated me for the September Author of the Month Group Reads of Goodreads’ M/M Romance Group. If you are a member of both Goodreads and the M/M-Romance group, and so inclined, I’d appreciate your vote. (You have to be logged in.)

You can vote here until August 27th.

    8) Congratulations 8) on your winning awards and I love your books, you are such a talented writer.

    P.S. I am looking forward to the final book coming up, I read that you have finished the draft.

      Thanks Chris. :)
      Yes, the first draft is finished but there’s still a lot of cleaning up to do. I think it’ll be ready to be published the second half of October.

      To tide you over I will publish a few excerpts before that though. ;)

      For the moment I’m busy with another project about which I’ll blog soon.
