Celebrating a Big Thing


 
I know I promised a short story for today, but I had something so incredible happen that I wanted to share it with you instead.

So, I’m celebrating the small things this Friday with a not so very small thing.

A little over a month ago I submitted my book, The Newstead Project to Compulsions Reads. For those of you who do not know about them, they are a group that endorses small press and indie authors. But they are highly selective; that’s the point. As most of us know, there are literally millions of indie books out there, some of which shouldn’t be.  That’s where Compulsion Reads comes in. They will review your book, for a fee, and decide if yours makes the cut. Less than half do. If yours happens to be one of the few selected, you get the honor of having their seal on your book and your book displayed in their library.

I know you know what’s coming next, but I’m going to say it anyhow: My book was accepted!!!

Here is the lovely seal that now gets to grace the cover of my book:
 
 
Pretty, isn’t it?

Have a great Memorial Weekend for all you USAers, and all you who are not. Due to the holiday, I won’t be posting on Monday; instead, my normal short story will come on Tuesday. Take care everyone!
