Grandparenting book wins Book of the Year!

THANK YOU! You did it. Grandparenting Through Obstacles won "Book of the Year" at The Book Club Network, and I owe it to you who voted. (Even if you didn't vote I'm grateful for your support!)
You can see the announcement, here in Book Fun Magazine on pages 66-67. To get to the announcement, click the right arrow at the top twice to flip a few pages to the Table of Contents on page 5, then look for the "Book of the Year Results are Announced," third item down on the far right side.

While you're on that page you can read about the results in the Letter from the Editing Manager on page 4. He talks about the contest about two thirds the way down the middle column.

He has some real interesting things to say which YOU INFLUENCED! He says he was surprised that they had the largest voter turn out in their history and more votes were cast for nonfiction than for fiction. That's because of YOU!! It was you who voted for our fist place nonfiction book, so it had to be you guys who did this! As a result he says they will be paying much more attention to nonfiction from now on, which is music to this nonfiction writer's ears. That helps me in the future, too. You did this and I can't thank you enough.

There's more great news on the announcement page. If you click on the "Book of the Year Results are Announced" in the Table of Contents it will take you to the first page of that article. Click the right arrow once to turn the page and you'll see our book and my picture along with my coauthor, Renee.
Just under the book's title, it says our book won "with 28.67% of the votes. An overwhelming lead!" That's more than 10% more than the second place book. Again you did this!

If you'd like to see the book, it is here on Amazon: and here on It's also on Nook and Kindle.

Again, thank you so, so much for making this happen!
