Bragging Rights …

My Readers Favorite Gold Medal         My Lovely Bride

I hesitated to begin writing this post. I seems like far too much self-aggrandizement for me to continue talking about winning awards for my writing. I actually did win an award, but shouldn’t someone else be trumpeting the news?

Then it dawned on me it had been a week and no one was exactly wearing ruts in the lawn seeking an interview (not that I expected them to … but I thought a little bit of interest would have been nice, in a kind of self-important, narcissistic way).

After ten days I realized it was useless to leave the porch light on … no one was coming except the postman (bringing sale papers and bills); and he comes in the afternoon with no need to light his way.

So, I’ll spend one more moment trying to toot this horn myself … but only a moment. I’ve got writing to do.

On Saturday, November 17, 2012, at the Regency Hotel in Miami, I accepted my 2012 Readers Favorite Gold Medal for Reichold Street. Along with two of my three sons and an enchanting young lady named Kiira Leess, my lovely bride of forty-two years was there beside me.

There, that’s done!

I don’t know about you, but I certainly feel better.

    Thanks everyone. Still seems a bit surrealistic. I’ll post something else about Miami soon … about meeting Paul Michael Glaser (remember “Starsky & Hutch”?). Paul won a silver medal for his fantasy novel “Chrystallia”

      Thank you, Denise. I hope you’ll leave a review … or at least agree with some of the ‘tags’ where you bought it. All feedback helps. And my bride IS lovely, isn’t she? 😉
