My sci-fi novel won the B.R.A.G. Medallion!


Yay! My sci-fi murder mystery "Spindown" won the B.R.A.G. Medallion. I'm so excited -- this is the first award any of my books has won. The B.R.A.G. Medallion is awarded by IndieBRAG (BRAG stands for Book Readers Appreciation Group), an organization dedicated to finding the hidden gems among "indie" (also known as self-published) books. Link to my book's page on their website is below.

Thanks to all the Doper readers who gave my book a chance, and a special thanks to everyone who left a review online!

I just bought the kindle version and downloaded the kindle for iPhone app. I know, I'm a cheapskate for not buying the $14 book. LOL

Hey, terrific. Recognition by readers is what every author wants. (And needs.)
