Joan Shoup, me, and Lisa Buffaloe at the Awards Banquet, Sunday night. I was so nervous I could barely eat the lovely dinner that was served. Lisa's novel, Nadia's Hope, was runner-up in the women's fiction category of the Genesis Contest. Congrats, Lisa!
A shot of The Quiet in the Land winning runner-up in the historical category of the Genesis Contest. As you can probably see, my name is misspelled and the title of my novel is wrong on-screen, but from what I can remember of that dizzy moment, they called the correct title over the microphone, and it's all correct on the certificate.
Right after that moment I would have loved to have my dinner plate back. :)
I don't remember who took the top photo, but the next two were taken by Ann Shorey. Photo of the Books & Such dinner was taken by Jill Smith, I'm almost certain.
