Snapdragon Has Been Named a BookLife Prize Quarterfinalist!
Thank you, publisher's weekly!
Amazing news! My debut novel, "Snapdragon" is one of the seventy-nine works chosen by Publisher's Weekly and BookLife to make it to the Quarterfinal round of the 2017 BookLife Prize! This was an unexpected nomination given some comments in the review that my Michael character was overly perfect (I guess they didn't get the memo that the second book in the series, Chrysalis, is from Michael's POV and resolves any doubts as to his flaws...). Either way, I'll take it! Check it out here on the BookLife Quarter Finalist page!
