Over the past few months, I have been entering my debut novel, ‘Voiceless: A Mermaid’s Tale’, into various book awards, in several categories. One award that I entered was the Firebird 2022 Book Awards. I had known that the awards were going to be announced today, so I checked, believing that because of the time difference between Australia and the USA that I’d have to check again tomorrow morning. I went looking, hoping for at least an honourable mention. But what I found shocked and amazed me. I won. I was the winner of the mythology category in the Firebird 2022 Book Awards. My debut novel was a category winner, and I still can’t believe it. I’m still squealing in joy over the announcement on speakuptalkradio.com.
‘Voiceless: A Mermaid’s Tale’ is available on Amazon, Google Play Books, Apple Books, Nook, Kobo and more.
