only big news is that, while both FALLEN ANGELS and GENTEEL SPIRITS were
finalists in the New Mexico-Arizona Book of the Year Awards, FALLEN ANGELS
actually won the award in the mystery/suspense category. It tied with THE
AMERICAN CAFÉ, by Sara Sue Hoklotubbe (a Choctaw name she got when she married
her very handsome husband). Oddly
enough, we sat at the same table together at the banquet. If I’d taken any
pictures, I’d show them here, but I always forget my camera. Sigh. However, I did take a picture of the award when I
got it home. It’s very nice, and they even printed the name of the book on it!
When I won the HOLT Medallion for ONE BRIGHT MORNING, they didn’t bother to
engrave the title on the back of the medallion, so I think this is swell:
than that, the month was pretty much like any other month. I’m still recovering
from my hellish ten-hour back surgery, but I’m in a whole lot less pain than I
was before the surgery, so I think all’s well there. Pretty soon, I’m sure the
doctor will allow me to lift more than fifteen pounds, so I’ll be able to
reclaim my Giblett from Fort Stanton, where he’s being well cared for by
another dachshund rescuer, Kari Coburn, bless her. In the meantime, I have
another foster wiener dog here. He’s Peanut, and he and Scrappy like to play.
All day long.
I also got advance reading copies (ARCs) of PECOS VALLEY RAINBOW, my March 2013
release from Five Star. I’m giving copies away this month in my contest, so if
you’d like to enter, please send me your name and home address at firstname.lastname@example.org
you’d like to read the first chapter of PECOS VALLEY RAINBOW (and just about
any of my other books), just wander on over to my web site, which is all
decorated for Christmas: www.aliceduncan.net
Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and that the rest of your
holiday season will be bright and merry!
