2008 Whitney Finalist & One chapter down

Some exciting news: ABINADI is a finalist for the 2008 Whitney Award in the Best Historical category. See the complete list of finalists here. I definitely have some stellar competition. The awards will be presented at the Whitney Gala on April 25, 2009.

Also, I finally finished ONE chapter in my non-fiction book (The Women of the Book of Mormon). I now fully understand why there has not been a book written on this topic before. I have a lot of great articles and references that I'm reading, but to pull it all together in one place is quite daunting. On to chapter two . . . hopefully it won't take me another month.

I'm so excited that Abinidi made it to the finals--definitely well deserved recognition. And, uh, yikes! I could never write that book in a bazillion years, so I'm glad you can. Best of luck, it sounds exhausting.
