I Don't Believe It--2009 Best of State




Last night I was up way too late working on some things, but it paid off. About 11:00 p.m. a notice came in from the awards committee for the 2009 Best of State. I clicked over the the link to see if Abinadi had made the cut. The first name I saw was Annette Haws for Waiting for the Light to Change. "Oh well," I thought. "Good for her." She's won the AML and a Whitney Award with that book, so I wasn't really surprised. In the past, only two books, a non-fiction and a fiction have been awarded the Best of State. Before I clicked off, I glanced on more line down and saw ABINADI. It was labeled as a Historical Fiction winner. I don't know if it's a new category, or if they couldn't decided between the two books, but I was elated.


So, on May 30th, I'm going to show up wearing some type of Formal attire at the Best of State Gala!
