2016 RONE Awards

As previously established, I suck at blogging, but have a bit of news that bears mentioning! So I come to you, dear readers, from the land of Hermits and Introverts, to announce that last week, The Sirens of Falkeld took home the 2016 RONE award in the YA Paranormal category! 

Can I get a "WUT, WUT"?!


First and foremost because I KNOW that the calibre of talent of the other nominees was top notch. (Here's lookin' at you, Barbara Kloss!... If you haven't checked out Barb's work, you need to. The girl writes a mean fantasy!) So it's quite the compliment to take home the gold when up against such epic talent. 

Secondly, because it was the first book competition I've ever been nominated for... AND I WON! (Whaaat?!) That's gotta be a good omen, right? (I'm gunna say it is...) I was lucky enough to be able to attend the actual awards ceremony in Burbank, CA and I gotta say, it was a blast. T.J. Mackay and the staff of InD'Tale were such a pleasure to be around. I'm so grateful that the planets aligned for us to meet. It was a wonderful night! 

Thanks to InD'Tale Magazine for making it all happen, to my hunky husband for... well... everything, and most especially to all of you, dear ones, for voting for Sirens in the reader's choice round, and for all your incredible love and support thorough this journey! Here's to many more successes to come, eh? *fingers crossed* 

XO, Julie
