Tonight (well, I guess it was officially last night) I had a wonderful experience meeting with the Cleveland Heights University Heights Parent Book Club at Noble Elementary School. I discussed the evolution of BRANCHES and signed books. About 12 of the 20 members were in attendance and we had a great time. I’ll meet with them again in March after they’ve finished reading the book and we’ll have a more in depth discussion. I learned that I’m not as shy as I normally am when I’m talking about something I love. Good things come to those who survive…
More good news: in January, I entered BRANCHES into the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. First prize is $50,000 and a book contract. Round 1 was based on a 300-word pitch and today they announced the Round 1 winners. Guess what? BRANCHES was one of the selections. Round 2 will be based on a 3000-5000 excerpt of the novel and the winners of Round 2 will be announced on March 12. Say a prayer that BRANCHES makes it through Round 2. I’ll keep you posted.
