It is POSSIBLE

bernie I just heard from a fellow author, Steve LeBel – for whom I did some beta-reading and reviewing – that his book The Universe Builders won the Grand Prize in the 2015 Writer’s Digest book contest, beating out every book in eight different categories! Writer’s Digest will publish an interview with him  in their May issue.  Winning comes with other prizes, too, including a $3,000 cash award.

He began 2014 with an unpublished manuscript and went on to publish both an ebook and a print book that reached best seller status on Amazon in three categories.  He attended lots of book signings and finished the year by winning the grand prize in a major book contest.

I’m not surprised, it was one of my favourite reads of 2014, and well-deserving of such an accolade.

Well done Steve, your success will inspire lots of other writers.

PS – can’t wait for book two!

Dreams can come true and mine was to live in Spain forever and ever ....  Well, after studying languages many years ago I became totally enamoured with all things Spanish, I finally made the big move for a more 'relaxed' lifestyle in 2003.  Since then, I have been teaching Spanish to Ex-pats and translating. Also, I trained as a Community Manager (Social Media) so that I have a genuine excuse to be on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet for hours on end, but then I started to write. My first attempt was for NaNo 2012 with 'The Nasrid Charm' (a story set in Spain and the Afterlife.) Like most first drafts, this is in need of serious revision and has been placed on the backburner, while I pursue my mystery stories. I'll get back to it - one day :)
