I decided to break this post up into 2 parts because I don’t want the awards to get lost in the mix because each one is an achievement. In addition to being a finalist in Science Fiction/Fantasy, I got notification that Dark Days was a finalist in the Feather Quill Book awards for Teens (13-18).
With each award I am more and more thrilled and as equally as shocked. So far Dark Days has won as a Finalist and Honorable Mention, which is of course not first or second. Not placing higher is a bit of a disappointment but winning as a Finalist or Honorable Mention is still an incredible feeling.
