My third book, Grandparenting Through Obstacles, Wins a CSPA "Book of theYear" Award!

Christian Small Publishers Association (CSPA) has announced the winners of their 2013 Book of the Year awards and Grandparenting Through Obstacles won in the "Family/Relationships" category!

A big hearty Thank You! to everyone who took the time to go vote. Obviously, this wouldn't have happened without you!
I offer my sincere congratulations to my co-author, Renee Gray-Wilburn, as well as to the twenty writers who contributed their stories and to Cavin Harper who wrote the foreword in the book.

Needless to say, our publisher, Pix-N-Pens Publishing, is also thrilled. This is the first Book of the Year award from Christian Small Publishers Association for the publisher as far as I know, so PNP is really excited. I also send my sincere congratulations to the publisher, Tracy Ruckman, for all she has done and all she is continuing to do to make this book successful.

(In the "continuing to do" category, we have some more really exciting news about something Tracy is up to...and we're going to need your help with that too, if I'm not coming to the well too often...but let's not cut this celebration short. I'll gather that information and put it in my next post and get it posted soon--perhaps tomorrow morning. Please don't miss it!

Oh.  You want a hint?  Okay: Going to St. Louis to promote my Pix-N-Pens books. But more about that later...)
For me, this is a special honor because this is the second year in a row one of my books has taken the "Book of the Year" in the Family / Relationships category! If you've been following this blog for long, you'll remember that my second book, Deliver Me, took this award a year ago.

Winning an award like this provides one more way to make our book known. It's hard to make a book known, but that is the only way it gets it on the radar scope of the people who need it and whom it can help.

So thank you again for all the help you gave us to win this "Book of the Year" award from Christian Small Publishers Association (CSPA). You voted. You prayed. You did it. I thank you so much.  Again.
