Exciting Times!

I don’t tend to post a lot about me on this blog – and perhaps I should – but today I need to whoop-n-holler a little bit. It’s been an exciting year so far.

Back in February, I decided to enter the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Carol Awards. I had three books release last year, and I hemmed and hawed about which one to enter. Well, I gave up and entered all three. It was announced this evening that I have two of the three finalists in the novella category. “Her Redcoat” in “The Backcountry Brides” and “In Sheep’s Clothing” in “A Bouquet of Brides.” Yowzer! The winner will be announced at the ACFW Conference in September.

At about the same time, I entered the RWA (Romance Writers of America) Faith, Hope, & Love Readers Choice Award. I only entered one of the books in that contest, “In Sheep’s Clothing,” and it’s also a finalist there. The winner will be announced at the end of July.

And then, knock me over with a feather, I was nominated for the ACFW Editor of the Year! I have no idea who nominated me (they don’t tell you), but I’m now a finalist in that contest as well. The winner will be announced at the ACFW Conference in September.

Did I mention that it’s been an exciting year so far? Well … it sure has. Even if I don’t win a single one of these contests, at least I know that I’m good enough to romp with the big dogs.

The Methuselah Project

The Methuselah ProjectThe Methuselah Project by Rick Barry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not exactly sure what genre I’d put this book into. Maybe suspense. Maybe historical. Maybe science fiction. Maybe a hybrid not yet named. But whatever it is – it’s worth reading!

Roger Greene was shot down in Germany during WWII. Taken prisoner, he expected the worse. But he had no idea. Medical experiments performed by a brilliant and twisted doctor forever changed his life.

No spoilers here, you have to read it and experience this one. It kept me guessing for the first half of the book. It seemed very disjointed to me in the beginning, which bordered on a turn-off for a bit, but hang in there, because it all comes together nicely.

If you like WWII history, if you like suspense, if you like “what if” type of stories, you’re going to love this. And even if you’re not sure you like any of these, you may want to give it a read anyway. It’s that different.
