The Way of the Eagle Wins Third National Award!

I am so happy to announce that my novella, The Way of the Eagle: An Early California Journey of Awakening, has won its third national award!  It has been named Finalist in the 2012 National Indie Excellence Awards (NIEA), in the Cross-Genre Fiction category. 

The announcement showing the book cover is located on the NIEA website, HERE.

Apparently there was a slight mix-up because not all winners and finalists were notified, so when the awards were first announced in a general email, I didn’t think it had won anything.  Fortunately the award organizer realized the problem and sent a new email August 1st.  And that’s how I found out, to my great delight. 

Check out the book if you haven’t already – it’s available for $3.99 on Kindle, HERE! on  It’s illustrated with five beautiful pieces of original art by award-winning artist, J.H. Soeder. 

You can read the Kindle book even if you don’t have a Kindle, since Amazon now has apps for all devices, PCs, and you can also sign up for their Cloud Reader and just read it online. When you check out, you are given the option to select which format(s) you want it and how/where you want to read. Pretty cool!
