I’m not having much time to blog lately, but even if I had, I probably wouldn’t. That’s because I have Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and bursitis in both my arms and shoulders so typing causes some pain.
Actually, sometimes it causes a hell of pain…
But it’s a manageable condition, meaning that, as long as I dont use my arms much, or use them with caution, it doesn’t hurts that much. I’ve had to take a lot of painkillers last month –which I hate– but I really had no option. I’m feeling better today, however, so I decided to finally post something new.
Well, I had unbelievably good news on July 1st, and still didn’t
brag about share with you.. My Sore Hush-a-Bye is one of The Kindle Book Review’s 2013 Best Indie Book Awards Semifinalist!!!!! Check it out: (Category – Literary Fiction)
I couldn’t believe my eyes either. I’m still so, so happy.
You know when people say at the Oscars that it was such an honor just being nominated, and that it didn’t matter if they win or not? And then we always think… Yeah, right! Well, I finally understand. It is true. It’s so crazy just being nominated, just being there with other amazing books as a semifinalist, that I really get them.
I’m not even dreaming about passing to the final 5 finalists (theres some serious competition, check out the other semifinalists!), but reading my book’s name on July first was already a prize to me. Seriously.
So now it’s waiting time, until September, when they’ll announce the finalists.
I want to thank some people so much. People that encouraged me in my writing, and gave me reason to believe My Sore Hush-a-Bye stood a chance in this competition. A lot of people, actually, but especially Becky, Chasity, Maria and Martha. You are amazing, and there aren’t enough words in my humble vocabulary to thank you. Be sure you all have a designed spot in my heart!
Meanwhile, Im still working on a new novel called Myself in Blue. It will happen, someday, but of course, it’s difficult with the typing-pain problem… I haven’t been able to write much, but the story is in my head. It will eventually come out. I already have the cover though! Maybe I’ll share it in my next post. 🙂
