When Bronze is Gold

Many months ago I entered the Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards contest with Woman of Flames. I was informed last night that the novel received a bronze medal in the Fiction- Historical – Personage category.

I’m thrilled for two reasons. First, the judges considered my book worthy for recognition as a historical work. Throughout the writing process, I prayed this story would appeal to more than people of faith. I’d hoped that someone without knowledge of the Torah or the Bible would appreciate Deborah’s courage and strength. This award is proof that this prayer was answered. Secondly, Throughout the past months, I’ve been part of a Facebook group of other nominees for this award. Their support, ideas, and wisdom have been a great help to me. It’s been wonderful, in a world that values cut-throat competition, to be a member of such a supportive community. I congratulate all the finalists for their fine work and for being such outstanding people!
