2019 Life-long Learning: International Digital Awards!

    Last week as I cleaned out emails from places and people I didn’t know, princes from far away offering me their fortune, sales of items I didn’t know I needed, and promises of things I’d never have, I must have missed an important one. Because later in the week, I received an email from Oklahoma Romance Writers of America about a contest I entered last summer. I was a finalist! I know because they sent me a digital badge to add to my promotion of the book.

I’m a skeptic. I wrote her back. What’s this? Normally I just hit the delete button. It has caused me problems in the past. I’m sure I deleted a note from a long-lost cousin once telling me that his brother died.

She replied, “You’re a finalist in the OWRA International Digital Awards!”

What? It started to dawn on me. I did remember entering that contest last summer. I’ve won a few contests for my writing, but as a rule, I sit idly by watching my contemporaries win. I was astounded. Not that I thought Witches’ Cliff didn’t deserve to be honored, but because there are so many good writers out there. I know some who enter and win every contest that comes down the pike. Not me. I often enter and wonder what it is that judges are looking for.

Then the second email came. This time with an explanation. I was a finalist and they sent a list of all the winners. https://okrwa.com/contests/international-digital-awards/winners/

My novella, Witches’ Cliff, won fourth place in the International Digital Awards, in the short paranormal division. I was beyond excited. I had decided to enter more contests this year and now, I will keep that promise to myself. It was fun and it made my day to think that someone liked my work.

So, check it out. Witches’ Cliff https://tinyurl.com/y3fktu44 is a short novella written for Halloween, but great for any season. A modern-day witch goes to a quaint Vermont Inn to speak with her ancestors about an age-old problem. Along the way she meets another witch who is not so kind and she ends up fighting for her life.

Pick up a copy and let me know if you like it. It will make my day.
