Today Solace in So Many Words is one year old. In addition to commemorating that milestone, we also have a new reason to celebrate.
Earlier this week we received the news that Solace in So Many Words is the Winner in the Anthology category of the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
The final announcements about the winning books and grand prize winner will be published at the Next Generation Indie Awards website in the next few weeks. I will keep you posted.
Solace in So Many Words will be listed as a Winner in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards catalog which will be distributed at Book Expo America (BEA) in New York. All finalists and winners are invited to attend an awards reception at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on Monday, June 4th (during BEA).
Who knows? Maybe I’ll go to NYC to receive the award medal in person.
I also have high hopes because SISMW is a finalist (in the anthology category) for the ForeWord Book of the Year Award (BOYA). ForeWord will formally announce the 2011 Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award Winners, as well as the Editor’s Choice Prizes for Fiction and Nonfiction, and the Independent Publisher of the Year Award at American Library Association’s (ALA) annual conference in Anaheim, CA, June 23. (So it may be a West Coast trip will be in order too.)
Thank you for making this a great year!
Since birthdays are a time to reminisce, I will look back in the year in the next blog post. Today I will celebrate (and maybe make a birthday wish for the coming year).
Thank you again for your readership and support of Solace in So Many Words (I cannot say it enough.)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Solace in So Many Words! I am lifting a glass at this very moment.
What a wonderful year for Ellen Wade Beals and this great anthology. What a terrific time I have had doing the public readings and meeting and enjoying the authors and our readers. Thank you, Ellen, for making this possible.
