I am so happy to pass on this award (which was presented to me by Jackie Layton http://www.jackiesbackporch.blogspot.com/ ) to 4 authors who have encouraged me and helped me on the road to publication. Although there are hundreds more I could pick from, so I will also add ACFW (Anerican Christian Fiction Writers) to which many of them belong. So, drumroll please!
The winners of this award are: Jennifer Johnson, Jeanie Smith Cash, Debra Ullrick and Jeri Odell. Jennifer has been my crit partner for almost 10 years and has helped me grow as a writer and friend so much! Jeanie, Debra and Jeri took a chance on me as a unpublished author when they invited me to join them in a collection a couple years ago which resulted in my first pubbed fiction–Christmas Belles of Georgia.
So, a big thanks to all of them and the example they set for me and other Christian authors to encourage new authors. Please check out their blogs/websites below and congratulate them. And continue to pass this award on to others who have helped you and your writing with random acts of kindness!
