I feel like a complete twit! I happen to check an @mention on Twitter today and noticed that iUniverse had tweeted this about me “Masks by @PatriciaCavigli & Youthanasia by S.P Perone named YA Fiction finalists in National Indie Excellence Awards.http://ow.ly/57TTI” on June 7th. I went to the link in complete disbelief. I felt foolish enough to have missed this tweet four days ago when I discovered that the announcement had been made May 15th! There must have been an e-mail. Where’s my head at???
Anyway, I’m thrilled. Thank you so much National Indie Excellence Book Awards!
