My Award Is Here!

Miracle of miracles, my spiffy clear-acrylic Story of the Year Award for my novel Rise Like Lions arrived today in one piece from across the Atlantic Ocean.

My thanks once again to all those who nominated and voted for my novel in this year’s fan-run poll of favorite media tie-in fiction, and to the fine folks at who administrated the poll and bequeathed unto me this lovely trophy for my ego shelf.
