and the bronze medal goes to ... The Dogs Who Found Me
One of the many strange things that happened at BEA is that I ran into Steve O'Keefe from AuthorViews and he said, "Congratulations on your award." Had I won an award? "The silver medal," he said. I asked my publisher, they didn't know about it. Finally, I ran down to the Forward Magazine's booth. They sponsor a best of the year award for independent publishers. And there it was: a bronze medal in the pet category for The Dogs Who Found Me. The gold went to Just Gus, a book I love, so I can't be bitter and jealous. There is a certificate involved, suitable for framing. I gave it to my publisher, since it would no doubt be destroyed by the time I carried it home.
