Back in February it was announced that VTZH was a finalist for the North Street Book Prize in Independent Publishing (scroll all the way down in the announcement link to see my name), but I was too busy to let everyone know. It was a few days before Valentine’s Day, and one of the best Valentine’s gifts I’ve ever received. Now that things have calmed down a bit, I’m finally shouting it from the treetops in the form of a blog post. 🙂
I’ll admit it. This “new year” blog post is late to the point of being ludicrous. But what a year 2014 was—plenty of smash-my-face-on-the-desk moments as well as little victories. It was the year in which I published my very first novel, and let me tell you, it was hard. Let’s say that again, for emphasis: It was haaaaaaaaaaaaard. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at my publishing journey.
