Most of the time, news is bad...sometimes VERY bad. However, the Denver Post included a good news article about the literary award I was given for my book: North Mystic.
The end of June, North Mystic was awarded first place in the Purple Dragon Fly award for outstanding children's literature in the sci fi/fantasy division! I am so excited!
You can read the article here:
 Now, I know there are no horses in this book but you would enjoy it anyway! It is a fun allegory of the revolutionary war but with trolls and leprechuans.
The best place to get it is on amazon or its website:  If your local library doesn't have it, just put in a request and they can get it. 
It is nice to read something good isn't it?
