I was recently notified that Tatianna was a semi-finalist in the Reader Views 2007 Annual Literary Awards in the memoir as well as the spirituality and inspiration categories.


“Reader Views reviews more than 2,000 books per year from budding authors who have worked hard to achieve their dream of being published,” Reader Views Managing Editor Irene Watson says. “Our Annual Literary Awards recognize the very best of these up-and-coming authors, all talented writers who we know have very promising writing careers ahead of them.” The awards program was established several years ago to honor writers who self-published or had their books published by a small press, university press, or independent book publisher.


Imagine my delight a short time later when I learned Tatianna placed in both categories.


Memoir: Second Place

Spirituality and Inspiration: Honorable Mention


The Reader Views Annual Literary Awards are granted in 20 fiction and 30 nonfiction categories, as well as 15 specialized, sponsored categories. The entries are judged by Reader Views reviewers, all avid readers with a wide range of experiences, considered experts in the respective fields.


A couple weeks later I received black and gold award seals to place on the cover of my book! If you have a copy of Tatianna and would like a seal for the book, please email me.


Bountiful Blessings!
