    I'm proud to announce that my novel, "Grow Old With Me," is a 2011 Dan Poynter Global eBook Awards Finalist. :-D

    It was nominated back in April, but I've just gotten the word about its Finalist status. The Award Ceremony is Saturday in Santa Barbara, CA--too late to get lodging. Bummer!!

    Think I'll wait until next week to change the cover and data on Amazon and Barnes & Noble just in case I'm a Winner. ;) The gold Finalist sticker for my book cover looks great. A gold Winner sticker would be even better.

    Wow - Congrats!!!

    It is about 30 minutes South to Ventura if you'd like to look for lodging alternatives!

    Hmmm, I'm not sure what the issue is with the website. Thought that was a clickable link in my signature. I'll try to put it here. http://www.melindaevaul.com If this isn't functioning copy and paste it into your website browser.

    I haven't gotten the paperback out to libraries yet. That's a tough one. You can get the eBook and read it on your laptop. There is a free application for that from both Amazon and B&N.

    Message me if you need more info or help.

    Thanks for all the "congratulations" posts. I'm thrilled to make Finalist.
    The idea of lodging in Ventura would be good if the flight wasn't so costly. Last minute bookings aren't cheap. I'd have to sell many books to recover my costs.
    You folks are supper. I appreciate your support.

    It is in paper. You can get it from my website using PayPal.

    I'm working on all the documents to get it to Amazon etc. as a paperback. Getting into the library and such takes months of red tape. I bypassed that with the eBook version.

    My website is listed in my signature line. http://www.melindaevaul.com I'll autograph it for you.
