EPPIE Finalist


I needed good news and I got it.
I am a finalist in the EPPIE Awards in the action/adventure category for my first published book, Beneath the Surface. The finalists are announced in March next year at the EPIC conference in Las Vegas. I need a travelling companion and I will be on my way. Anyone else out there going to the conference?
My other good news is yet another great review from Cocktail Reviews for Crash into Darkness. I got a score of 6 glasses of champagne out of a total of 5 possible glasses or a full bottle of champagne.
This was the last sentence: This exceptional tale really pulled me in and didn’t let go. I saw everything as though on a movie screen. Most impressive!

Thanks, Erica. The other three finalists are all men. Goes to show you, women can write action/adventure just as well as they can.

Thanks, Tina-Sue. It is pretty gratifying when someone else gets your work. In this case more than one, I guess.

Hi Lainey,
Good reviews always help the writer's ego. Not sure what else they help but I won't say no to one.

YAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!

So proud of you, Suzanne!
(and, I might add, not one bit surprised). ;D

Actually, Raine, I was surprised. I don't know who judges the first round of the EPPIE's. Maybe it was the readers because I always do well with them, but not with editors and agents. Isn't it the readers who matter most? So how are the editors and agents choosing books to represent and publish?
