Finalist in the 2017 Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards

Today I received two emails that begin with:

Congratulations on being chosen as a finalist in the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards competition. We received 620 submissions, and competition was tough. Though not one of the three cash award winners, your work was on the finalists list in the fiction category.

I entered the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards competition in October 2017 with The Wedding Bell, my speculative novel, and All Those Monsters, a short story.

  1. Roxanna, I told you a few years ago that I believed your story would become something special, and that you would be a celebrated writer someday…this is just proof of how smart I am. Ha! CONGRATS! So well deserved. So well deserved. Cheers, Mindy

    • Thank you so much for the kind words, Mindy! You’ve always been there for me.
      The contest entry was only the first 5,000 words of my novel, so I wouldn’t read too much into this. They liked my writing well enough, I assume.
