When Women Were Warriors Book I is a quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

Today Amazon.com announced the 250 quarterfinalists in the General Fiction category for the 2010 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Book I of my trilogy made the cut!

Here's the announcement.

They gave it a nice little review.

And two weeks ago the same book won an EPPIE! That's an EPIC ebook award. In the Mainstream category.

I must admit to feeling a bit stunned.

And lately I've had some lovely emails from folks who have read my books and liked them a lot and said some very nice things about them.

So I'm just going to enjoy all of this awhile. And maybe gloat a little.

That's amazing - so when is someone going to make this series of books into a mini-series already? LOVE the books!

I'm a little late to the game here. Just stumbled on to your books via amazon reviews, and read all three this week. For me this is an accomplishment as I don't think I was able to read three books all last year that weren't technical manuals for work. Regardless, thank you. Truly enjoyable reading. I do hope you discover more stories to tell. I'll look for them.

I just wanted to thank you for your generosity in making your first book available for free. I read it, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and have bought the next two on the strength of it and recommended them to my friends as well.

I love your books! I read them so quickly the first time and now I am reading them again paying more attention to detail and I am just in love with the characters. I still have hope that maybe these characters will have more stories to be told. I just wanted to say thank you for the free ebook and that the other two were well worth it :D I hope you keep on writing :)

Thanks, everyone, for your comments. I often hear from folks that they are rereading the books, sometimes for the fifth or sixth time. (I did the same thing with Lord of the Rings.) If you're into Facebook, there's a When Women Were Warriors group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/146003668785366/
