I am really pleased to announce that Remedy, book three in The Forgotten Legacies series, has been chosen as the Solo Medallist in Fantasy for the New Apple Book awards 2017!
I found out on the 15th February and I’ve been grinning ever since. To my shame it has taken me this long to announce it.
Last year was such an amazing year for my writing, Darrienia was a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book awards, The Severaine received a Readers Favorite 2017 award for dystopian fiction, was a finalist in the Independent Author Network book for the year awards for two categories, fantasy and action/adventure, and was an Official Selection in the New Apple Awards, and now Remedy has joined the award winning ranks as the Solo Medallist for fantasy in the New Apple Award for Excellence.
I honestly can’t even begin to express how amazing it feels. When I first started writing I never dreamt I would receive an award, and now, if you include the 2016 Independent Author book of the year award for ‘Outstanding Fantasy’, Darrienia received, I have won a staggering five, not to mention that each book in the series has been awarded 5 Stars by Readers’ Favorite, I’m really blown away, and honoured, by it all.
I really want to take this moment to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged me. I am grateful to all of you, my followers, readers, friends, and family. Without you I would never have had the confidence to see this through.
On that note, I am currently revising the final book in the Forgotten Legacies series tetralogy, which is aimed for release in early 2019. It’s a larger undertaking than I initially anticipated since I decided I could do better and scrapped everything after the first few chapters. I really hope that I can continue to live up to the promise I made when I released my first book. Thank you all again, your continued support and encouragement humbles me.
