I was only going to New Orleans for the Next Generation Indie Book Awards if I won. I thought I had, but I had won the National Indie Excellence Awards in the category of Relationships, not the NGIBA.
Confused? I was.
On the other hand, finalists are considered award winners. They just aren’t first place. If I count everything up I was a WINNER in Relationships at the National Indie Excellence Awards and a finalist in Aging. I was a finalist in both Relationships and Women’s Issues at the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
And this morning, I learned that because I had a five-star review from Reader’s Favorite Book Awards, I’m entered in their contest too.
My glass is half full. 🙏✍️
