Oh my God, I received the news this morning that Shadows won an Honorable Mention. This is the first award I've ever won, lol! And I'm just besides myself. There are so *many* excellent authors' competing for awards in different categories... several really big names. I'm honored to have made it this far. :)
October 1st the finalists of the 2013 Rainbow Awards will be announce.
An Honorable Mention means a judge really liked the book, so much they gave it a rate above 36 out of 40; an honorable mention doesn't necessarily mean the book is a finalist, we'll have to wait for the actual announcement on October 1 to know that.
