In my last post I told you my book Finding the Upside of Down was a finalist for the Colorado Independent Publishers Association EVVY awards.

Well guess what? I won a merit award in one category and a third place in another.

It was a fun night. A couple hundred authors and people associated with independent publishing were there. We had dinner and drinks and got to wear fancy clothes.

Channel 9 investigative reporter Ward Lucas was the speaker. It was a great night.

Now, I’m off to eastern Europe for a month. (Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia)

I’m sure I’ll have stories to share when I get back!

Renewed can help nurture those areas of women’s lives to use them better for work, family, and service. It gives readers permission to examine where they spend their energy and time, and learn to set limits and listen to “that inner voice."
