I’ll post more about this when I have a chance, but Murder in County Tyrone earned an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite book awards. This is a most improbable sequence of events, as it was my first book; I submitted the application whilst not quite sober (truth be told, the lack of sobriety was probably the only reason I entered); and I had no idea how big of a deal it is or how many people enter.
I had the opportunity to attend the awards ceremony the past few days in Miami, and had a good time hobnobbing with my fellow authors. I’ll post some pictures in the upcoming days when my life returns to its normal level (utter chaos).
For the first time, I saw my book on display on shelving. Thrilling, especially to be sharing the space with other award-winning writers. Humbling, too.
