I’m pretty sure that at some point in the last few months I got an email from my publisher letting me know that she’d entered Aloha Also Means Goodbye in some literary contests. I have a vague memory of reading that email and instantly mentally filing it under “information I should care about, but don’t really know what to do with so I’ll just get on with my day.”
Basically, I instantly forgot about it.
So, cue complete and utter surprise this morning when I received an email letting me know that Aloha had just taken silver in the 2014 Independent Publisher Book Awards. (in the romance/erotica ebooks category)
Over 2500 books from all over the world compete and my little book came second in its category.
I’m quite the proud mama. And an award winning novelist apparently.
