I’m thrilled to tell you that Her Own Vietnam has won the Silver in Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards in its category (war and military fiction). The award, which was selected by a panel of librarians and booksellers, was announced on June 26. This is the first literary award I’ve ever won, and the first (of many, no doubt) for my publisher, Shade Mountain Press.
Let’s get together
If you live in the Washington, DC area, please come to my reading and book talk about Her Own Vietnam on Tuesday, July 7th at 6:30 pm. The event will be at Busboys and Poets on 14th and V, hosted by Politics and Prose, which has a bookstore within the restaurant. The reading is free and you’ll meet cool people there.
