Indies Unlimited Writers up for Awards

The Indies Unlimited authors are killin’ it. Laurie Boris is a finalist in the Festival of Words competition in the literary fiction category for her novel Drawing Breath. DV Berkom, Carol Wyer, and Laurie Boris are all semifinalists in the Kindle Book Review 2013 Book Awards.

Not to be outdone, Entertainment Weekly has published its top 100 novels of all time. Frankly, there were some names on the list that I didn’t even know. As I perused the list, I was stunned to find that my novel, The Card, was sitting in the #13 spot! Who would have known?

You may not believe it, but manifestation boards do work. Here’s mine:

I need to do a new one because lots of the things on there came true. Try it, even without believing in it; stick it up on your wall and see how many things you accomplish in a year.
