I had the privilege of attending the Christy Awards last night. It was an awesome experience. Not only did I share the room with the whose who of Christian fiction, but the room is filled with people with a passion for fiction. I was blessed.
I want to congratulate any and all who nominated. All the titles and their authors deserve to be the winner, but then again there can only be one winner in each category.
Congratulations to the winner!
