Yesterday I received a huge surprise when I learned that Shadowed by Grace received Christian Retailing’s Best Award in Historical Fiction. To say I’m humbled and excited hardly begins to describe it. I think I scared the neighbor boys who were playing here when I got the word. There was a little bit of jumping going on, too.
So I don’t have much to share today other than I’m grateful. I’m grateful to all the retailer’s and publishing folks who voted for Shadowed by Grace. I’m grateful that this story of my heart continues to reach new readers.
And I’m grateful for all of you. This journey has been a crazy ride. Ten years ago God told me now was the time to write. Twenty books later, I’m still hanging on. And this award just seems like a kiss from heaven. Here’s to the next ten years!
