Kindle Book Awards

A few days ago I received some very exciting news.  I was notified that my debut novel Poka City Blues is a semi-finalist in the literary fiction category in the annual Kindle Book Review Awards. I poured a lot of emotions into this book because this is a story that is near and dear to my heart. There are a lot of true elements to this story and I wanted to make sure that when I tell this story I tell it right. I have always been passionate about writing and what I write about, so to be a semi-finalist in any book contest is gratifying to say the least. Why? Because it gives you confirmation that the story you wrote had enough merit to it to be considered for an award. Now, I have never won anything in my life, but to be considered for an award is an amazing feeling. Whether I win or lose, I can still and will walk away with my head held high because I wrote a story that was deemed good enough to be considered for an award.

It is tough being a writer, but if you truly believe in what you do, what you write about and your talent as a writer, you will not allow anything to hold you back from pursing your dreams. I know I have a ways to go to prove myself as a writer, but as with anything in my life, I am up for the challenge. To all you writers out there, I hope all of your dreams and aspirations come true. Keep writing and do not ever stop!

Until next time…
