Tune in November 1st at 7 PM EST to the 2017 Authors Talk About It Book Award Contest Award Ceremony!
I, honestly, never thought when I entered the 2017 Book Award Contest that I’d make it this far. My intention, when I submitted What It Takes to ATAI, was simple: A review/critique to this novel that would give me an insight to how far my writing has come since I started in 2009. Plus, it would give me a professional outlook on the story I’d created.
The feed back I received was nothing short of amazing. Hearing my title be announced as a finalist in the romance category is something I will never forget. That moment made it worth all the fear and angst I had putting What It Takes into a literary competition.
And no matter what, even if What It Takes doesn’t place first in the category, or become the grand prize winner, it will always be a book I can be proud of. Not bad for something that started out as a NanoWrimo project.
I’ll be tuning in on November 1st when ATAI goes live with a full heart and lots of anticipation for the winner announcement. Even if it means doing it on my phone. Why my phone? Well, you see, the universe thought it would be a great idea to crash into my schedule and double me up with two award ceremonies in one night. While my daughter is receiving her very first high school Academic Letter, I’ll be sitting on pins and needles awaiting the results of the 2017 ATAI Book Award’s. I have to admit, I sort of had my own personal meltdown when I realized her award ceremony and mine were bound to overlap. I stopped that shit real quick. Instead of worrying over time-frame overlaps, and how the hell I’m going to make it work, I smile. Why? Because I’m so friggin’ proud of both of us that there’s no room for anything else.
If you have time on November 1st at 7 PM EST, you should pop over to the Authors Talk About It Facebook page and watch the awards! Authors who’ve not heard of ATAI should take a few minutes and check out all they have to offer! Look for them on Facebook HERE, or you can go to their website HERE.
Thanks for stopping in!
