I am proud to announce that Everything For Love: Time Rogues Book 1 has won the 2018 Global Ebook Award GOLD MEDAL in the PARANORMAL category. I am so excited and overwhelmed with this honor. I’ve been self-publishing and working on books since 2007, starting with children’s fantasy adventure books and moving into paranormal romance.
I am so over the moon with this win! It is a heart felt challenge and love for books to write and publish them. This is the icing on the cake acknowledging the hard work to create sellable products of romantic and paranormal fiction.
I’d like to thank everyone that was involved in making this book including:
Editor: Shelley Holloway
Cover Designer: James at GoOnWrite.com
Copy Editor: Robin J. Samuels at Shadowcat Editing
Formatter: Ambersand Book Interior, Inc. (Formerly Write Dream Repeat Book Designs)
Beta Reader: Alain Gomez
Thank you to everyone that worked on this project. I share this award with you all.
And yes, I’m working on the sequel. The title hasn’t come to me yet, and I’ve just got it down as Time Rogues Bk 2 so far. But now, I’ve got to get going on it even more. Just so you know though, I have been working on the last in my children’s series books, The Lost Secret of Time, which has taken up a lot of my time this year. But now that it is finally releasing, I can turn my full attention back to my romance writing projects, and this will be one.
I know now what I do is something important and matters. If you have an idea for a novel and want to get it out there, maybe drop by one of my self-publishing panel appearances. I have a local one coming up at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library, on Saturday, Sept. 8, in Downtown San Jose at the Career and Business Center on the third floor. Hope to see you there.
Meanwhile, I guess I can officially start calling myself an award winning author. 😉 Seriously though, don’t give up on your dreams. If you have the need to write, do so. Your book is needed by the world. We can never have too many books. If you haven’t had luck with traditional publishers, it could be because it’s a niche market or a hard sell. That is perfect for self-publishing. Please look through my blog and if you have questions, send a message through my contact page.
Thank you everyone that has supported me through the years including my friends, family, the Society of Children’s Book Writers, South San Francisco chapter and the Silicon Valley Romance Writer’s of America chapter. Also, a big thank you to ALL THE READERS through the years that have helped me give you an escape through reading and an audience to write for. Thank you everyone! It feels good to get this validation that I’m doing something right. I share this award with you all.
